    hiya, I’ve had a male for 2 days and his proboscis is still split. most of the time he has been sleeping because the weather is crap … I tried releasing him this afternoon in a sunny patch but he made no effort to fly away. I was thinking the sunny patch not long enough and temperature cooled by a breeze .. I’ve had him in a cool dark place overnights and outside in overcast cool weather through the day mostly (apart from this afternoons sun). Should I bring him into a warm light place to see if his proboscis will join up? Next opportunity for release will be Monday probably because of severe weather warnings.
