The Serotine is similar to Noctule and Leisler’s but has a slightly different echolocation call. This species has only recently been confirmed as being present in Staffordshire. It is a species that appears to be expanding its range north and west from its original southern stronghold.

Having caught a large beetle, a Serotine will fly around slowly, chewing its prey and dropping the wing cases or sometimes take its prey to a feeding perch.
