With so many people in lock down we have been getting more records of bats flying in gardens. This was one from late April.It came with photos taken by Mark Bolton ,an experienced naturalist, who asked if we could identify the bat With photos this good we could identify the Beast easily
Mark told us it was taking St Mark’s flies off the ground in broad daylight, landing and then taking off again.
We might have ID’d the bat easily but we had to look up the fly. Photo.
