A bat found roosting in a phonebox in Cornwall is likely to be released back into the wild later.
The brown long-eared bat was spotted on Wednesday
The bat was discovered in a phonebox in the hamlet of Penelewey near Truro on Wednesday.
Volunteers from the Cornwall Bat Group have been looking after the creature, a brown long-eared bat.
Samantha Smith, from the group, said the bat appeared to be healthy and had probably sought shelter in the box due to the wind and rain.
"I think he just got caught out by lots of rain and wind and found shelter wherever he could," she said.
The bat was discovered by Nina Davey who was out walking her dog when she spotted it.
