Could be more thunder on the way
There were four nearby, they didn't spot me so I took a couple of pics
This one was doing the boxing as hares do, couldn't catch the action though. There are a good number around at the moment.
Lot to learn

In reply to gaynorsl:

I'd be getting a bat detector for Christmas ! I remember at a previous house bordering countryside 20 years ago we used to have bats flying round of an evening. You certainly have a good range of species there Gaynor and wonderful habitat for them. Was a thunderstorm here last night but it didn't last long. Got too hot yesterday so we're biding our time for a full day out bird/wildlife watching although August is usually a quiet month.
From what I understand, you had quite a storm over there, we just had the impressive lightning and constant thunder, and that was impressive enough.
Sadly, the lightning was in or above the cloud, so I never managed to get any decent photos, but I did get some video.
