Garden Safari in the evening

If I sit on the step at my back door in the evening I can see little bats flying around my garden. I get a little thrill every time I see them.  Sometimes, if I keep really still, they fly quite close in front of me that I can clearly see the dinstinctive bat wings.

I have no idea what species they are they do love hunting insects between the houses and in the ginnel at the back. Oh and my bats hunt singly, not like the masses you see in old hammy black and white movies!

Did you know - the German word for Bat is Fledermaus (translation.. flying mouse. Isn't that the cutest name?)
