A microbat that turned stranded close to the CBD has been rescued thanks to the brief-considering initiatives of Hyperlocal Information photographer Rachel Broadhead. 

“I imagined it was a leaf, maybe a mouse,” Rachel stated after discovering the small critter on a footpath on Premiers Lane on Sunday January 15.   

“When the rescue crew (Wildlife Victoria) came to just take him away for a check out-up, they let me know that he was however pretty young he did not even know how to fly nonetheless, what a toddler!”  

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