Hi Peter,
I live less than half a mile away from the Res's, some of which is in Denton and Bats are a regular sighting near us for as long as I can remember. I suppose you get the odd one up there but a good sighting nonetheless.
I had a Pipistrelle (not sure which of the 2?) a couple years back flying right next to me near the central well, I posted it at the time. It was struggling against the ferocious winds but if it had only flown a little bit lower than the embankment it would've met hardly any wind resistance at all, such is the meteorological phenomenon at Audenshaw Res!

Lots of myth and superstition about their association with the devil.

One was that they would curse whoever they were pointing at ....... hope you were peeping over somebodies shoulder Karen.

I love these beetles, Karen, & love their name - very appropriate as we wend our way towards Halloween
