Bats at Compton Verney

A short clip recorded during a busy night at Compton Verney in September 2012. A survey trying to record Nathusius' Pipistrelle, which might have been present in the area. Pipistrelles were flying all evening, and Daubentons cruised effortlessly above the lake, but we await the full analysis of the recordings to see if the Nathusius was around.
Just over a week later, on the repeat survey, a Lesser Horseshoe flapped past whilst we paused in a dense part of the lakeside shrubbery.
