What are bats doing in… winter

To survive the cold winters when insect numbers are very low bats will seek out a cool and humid site to hibernate in. This may be a cave or tunnel or even a hole in a tree. They will wake up from time to time to drink and feed if the weather is mild so it's not unusual to see a bat flying on a milder winters evening.
