Daylight bats..

Whilst walking in Mill Road Cemetery today with Tony we spied this bat flying around in broad daylight.

Hope this doesn’t mean that UK bats have got the dreaded lurgy that is killing all the bats in the USA one of the symptoms being reported was “Within a month, people in the area were calling in with reports of bats flying outside in the middle of the day.”

Many thanks to Sally for buying me the super zoom Olympus SP-560UZ for Christmas 🙂

Finding Heathrow Terminal 5

Don’t expect the Ordnance Survey or any of the other professional mappers to help you in finding Terminal 5 at London’s Heathrow airport.

Yep, you have to rely on Open Street Map. See how the other’s handle it on the opengeodata blog.
