This morning on my run on some Red Hill footpaths I saw more insectivorous
bats than I have ever seen in one morning. Normally I might see one or two
on a run on that route in the warmer months, but this morning I must have
seen 30-40 in groups of 2-6 in various places.

Why today? I know it's humid and all, but where are they when it isn't
humid, they must be feeding somewhere on non humid days.
