The Noctule is one of the largest British species and is usually the first bat to appear in the evening, sometimes even before sunset. Noctules are open country bats and fly high and fast with repeated steep dives to catch insects.

In spring they eat mostly smaller insects switching to larger prey such as cockchafer beetles and yellow underwing moth species.
