It is well established that insectivorous bats throughout the temperate and tropical zones are almost exclusively nocturnal. Occasionally, however, bats are observed to emerge from their daytime roosts and fly during daylight (e.g. Miller, 1962; Tugendhat, 1966). Accumulated records of daylight flying activity of bats, in Britain, have revealed that bats which emerge in daylight probably do so as one of a suite of strategies to make good shortfalls of energy intake during their immediately… CONTINUE READING
