No Bats in the Belfry

That was a bit of a shock, then.

We just came out from Evensong at Little Tremlett, to be passed by Ned Rochester heading in with his shotgun. I’d heard the pigeon scurrying around during the service and wondered how the poor thing was going to be removed.

“When they hear about it, it’ll make the bats think twice.”
