Bat Watching on the River

Posted by Michelle On July - 24 - 2010 Comments Off on Bat Watching on the River

Last night I went on a very exciting Bat watching evening trip on the river Camb here in beautiful Cambridge. I wasn’t really sure what to expect but to my surprise we were handed Bat sound detectors and each punt had a wildlife expert with a flash touch.

We were taken up river and watched the bats swooping down to the river catching bugs and tawny owls flying. It was truly amazing to watch them and to learn many fascinating facts about the Pipistrelle and Daubenton bats.

What interested me was why have I been drawn to the river this evening in search of bats, so I decided to check out what the bat has to show us.

Symbolically the bat is about change or transformation. Its visit can be a sign that change will soon occur and not to be afraid. Sometimes the bat is a symbol for facing ones fears. It can also indicate a time of an awakening because the bat, a nocturnal mammal, awakens in the dark. Its presence can illuminate dark shadows. It can also be a sign of opportunity.

Because the bat is a sociable animal it can indicate a need for more sociability or increased opportunity with greater numbers of people. It has great auditory perception and can navigate through the dark easily. Their built in sonar enables them to know what lies beneath the surface. Those with the bat around can have uncanny abilities to discern hidden messages both from people and the environment.

Well a lot of that makes sense to me and answers my question as to why I was there. If you have an animal that appears that you do not normally see or one that you are drawn to, let me know and I can share their message.

Remember my webinar that is coming up on 3rd August at 7pm UK time where you can join me and learn ‘How to Communicate with Animals’.

Take care for now.

Much love
