Pardon the poor photograph - fortunately I have no aspirations to be a photographer - but after watching a solitary bat flying around for about 5 minutes or so outside my Crossfields balcony on Friday it occurred to me that I might be able to get a picture of it.
It is actually the first time I've seen a bat in Deptford and I've no idea what species it was - as you can see from the light it was before sunset. At about 8:15 pm, I guess it was out for an early breakfast. It was hunting insects in a fairly compact area over Creekside, the front of the Creekside Centre and over the northern parts of the Faircharm estate.
Has anyone else seen bats on Crossfields?
