Quirky Corner - February 2023


A microbat that became stranded near the CBD has been rescued thanks to the quick-thinking efforts of Hyperlocal News photographer Rachel Broadhead. 

“I thought it was a leaf, perhaps a mouse,” Rachel said after finding the little critter on a footpath on Premiers Lane on Sunday January 15.   

“When the rescue team (Wildlife Victoria) came to take him away for a check-up, they let me know that he was still very young; he didn’t even know how to fly yet, what a baby!”  

Mircobats range from four to 10 centimetres in length and weigh less than a 10-cent coin. •
