Nice to have some sunshine yesterday. I was really surprised to see a bat hawking around the garden in bright sunshine at 1.30pm. Watched it for about 20 minutes. Used to seeing them around the house and garden at dusk but can’t remember watching one in the middle of the day before. Pretty impossible to capture on camera given speed of movement but blurry crop below under excuse of record shot. Seems bizarre against a blue sky.
Aside from the bat, red kite, 3 buzzard, raven, carrion crow jackdaw, magpie, jay, 20 redwing ground feeding in paddock with green woodpecker, blackbirds and goldfinch, bullfinch, robin, dunnock, wren, chaffinch, blue tit, great tit, coal tit, long tailed tit, nuthatch, treecreeper, 2 goldcrest, grey wagtail, house sparrow, herring gull
