I’ve probably mentioned this elsewhere, but in the UK it is illegal to upset bats* (I totally agree with this, they are delightful creatures.) Someone I knew bought a house and the survey did not reveal bats in the attic. They entered the attic to investigate and the son of the house got bitten by a bat. Worse than the visit to A&E was the police telling them they could be prosecuted for interfering with bats.
It doesn’t want to be stuck in a room with someone capable of videoing in vertical format**
Open the windows, turn the lights out. let the bat get on with it.
*We are after all the country where there was a DEFRA helpline to advise farmers on how to deal with foxes. It was closed when it was discovered that 90% of the calls were from people who had urban foxes in the garden and wanted to know what they liked to eat.
**Look, it should be possible for Apple to have a big notice come up saying “Turn the phone 90 degrees clockwise, numskull”.
