Batty for Autumn

A brief explore out in the garden after sunset this evening was initially a little disappointing – no hedgehogs, no bats, nothing, despite the very mild weather for mid-October thanks to a tropical storm coming in off the Atlantic this weekend.  It was only as I approached the house and the security light that the bat detector chirped into life, seemingly the sky was suddenly full of bat chirps; the reason soon became obvious – there was a vast assortment of night life buzzing around the bright security light, and the bats were having a feast!  The bright lights didn’t seem to bother the bats, though they were very good for lighting up their bodies as they fluttered by.  There must have been at least two bats in attendance, possibly more, difficult to tell as they came and went and the chirping seemed too much for just one bat.
