Upottery Airfield, Smeatharpe

A late afternoon visit just before dusk once the rain had stopped found 58 Fieldfare, 2 Stonechat and 10 Golden Plover. However the best sighting was of a large bat hunting around the sillage mounds - from size, shape, lack of long ears and habit of deep dives etc, i took it to be a noctule.
