The pedant in me wants to point out that bats are almost blind 😛 But I agree with what you’re saying. I think the problem is that very few councillors represent the city centre as a ward. Try to build someting in Dublin SE? Good luck. That place is almost UNESCO. But tamper with one of the single most important architectural set pieces in the country? Go right ahead. Sure they’re only pavements. And trees are good for the environment. Call it Laceyism, for want of a better term.
The pedant in me shall point out that bats have good eyesight, on a par with humans and actually better in low levels of light. However, if the bat in question was shortsighted the fact that he would get about in fog (or any other climatic conditions) using sonar rather than sight would render their myopia as inconsequential to navigating.
(Friday fact for ya 😉
