Bat out of belfry most likely a bird | Brief letters
Anita Roy’s lovely country diary on the chapel in Ayshford, Devon (31 March), was interesting in many respects. However, bats in the belfry would not leave ‘dusty white splotches’ on the pews – their droppings are dark brown or black, depending on species. Those from my nursery roost stick to the bricks on my bungalow wall as they fall. Perhaps a little bird enjoys being in the chapel listening to the organ.

Further to the achievements of Miriam Rothschild (Letters, 29 March), her sister Pannonica should also be celebrated as an extraordinary and accomplished woman. Without her, the world might never have known one of the greatest modern jazz pianists of the 20th century, Thelonious Monk.

I enjoyed Dave Simpson’s insightful interview with Jim Kerr, the Simple Minds singer/songwriter (31 March). It also seemed apt for it to be published just after as the report on Boris Johnson’s appearance before the lacklustre backbench liaison committee- simple minds in concert.
What a treat! A whole newspaper on Monday with no photos of Boris Johnson in it – only marred by Donald Trump on page 32.
To make Labour cut through (Letters, 29 March), invent a huge lie, write it on the side of a bus and tour the country – easy.
