A beautiful evening. There were not man bats about to begin with, and there were no bats in the boxes this time. (picture was taken last time and you can see the bats in the box are brown long eareds)
Good sight of Noctules over the lake. To being with they played nicely but then ended the evening squabbling over territory.
We had hoped to use the bat catcher to catch Noctules which often occupy a roost. But they had heard of our plans and there was no one at home. But at theend of the evening we checked a tree which has never been occupied and we saw five Noctules coming out. There were probably more but we got to the tree quite late. We will have to wait to see if they are there next week.
