Our esteemed chairman Steve recorded some bat sounds a few months back. His analysis suggests that the sound in question is a Daubenton's bat (on which, more information here). The sound he recorded is available as an MP3 file here so have a listen. Of course the sound would ordinarily be too high pitched for human ears but the special bat detector brings it within our audible range.

There were five Moorhen chicks out and about. They look pretty ugly if you ask me - little balls of black fuzz with a bald head and stubby bald winglets.
This Magpie was admiring his reflection in the new pond.
And finally a snail - Arianta arbustorum if my 'looking things up on the web' skills are not mistaken!
