RE: Goyt Valley Offerton/Bredbury (other wildlife)


Only a couple of things of note really; the year's first gatekeeper near the Hydro site, and a shaded broad-bar also there (it's a good year for them). One comma was also seen amongst a few small skippers, ringlets, small tortoiseshells, and meadow browns. Other insects were poorly represented.

A few butterflies this p.m. (small tortoiseshells and commas), but the highlight was a largish, light brown bat flying over the river beneath Jim Fearnley bridge at 4.00 p.m! Given the location, the low flight over the water, and its unfamiliarity to me, I am near certain it was a Daubenton's. After a minute or so, it flew to the trunk of a riverside tree, attached itself, and hung up in the sunshine. All very interesting. Am unable to post photos at moment due to camera problem.

 Photo now added. Can anyone confirm the species from this please?
