Description

We were on a Nature Kenya Sunday bird-watch at Swara Plains south of Athi River on 21st June 2015. As we walked through the bush we spotted a bright yellow bat flying away, seemingly spooked by us. A few people among our group who are professional field guides quickly identified it as a Yellow-winged Bat. Unfortunately I couldn't get a photo of it as it quickly disappeared into some thick bush.

We set up mist nets and bat detectors near a cave in De Hoop as part of our bat project. We caught a number of Rhinolophus clivosus, brought them back to where we were staying to measure them, and then we released them.

The departure of these bats leaves a pencil like nature of trees they roost on. The tendency is that people think they destroy the roosting trees. But their departure provides a regeneration period for the trees.

around one thousand bats in this cave, only one species in the site.
The cave is wide.

Unsure of id, seems different from H. caffer seen in the other caves of the area (round ears, small nose).

Got some tissu sample in pure alcohol.
