Took this while out and about on the moors today...

Day flying bat - watched it for about 20 mins as it flew round and round in a small clearing within old woodland..

Super shot Derek and amazing you were able to catch it in flight as the ones I get around my garden are so fast I used to think they were House Martin. .

Hi Derek,
I threw this one out to the bat group and Noel Jackson responded with the following:

Red arms and is that a fringe we can see round the tail.
Pale underside in shadow and ears quite big although foreshortened in the picture.
I think this is Natterers.
I wondered when we would start to see day-flying bats.
The ones i have picked up have been starving.
The ones i have seen flying haven’t been catching much.
