The early bat catches the moth ?

I was sat in garden last night listening to the resident song thrush giving it his all when I saw my first bat of the year. I sadly did not have my detector to hand but it was a clearly a pipistrelle flying very, very low indeed. It is certainly not the ideal time for bats to emerge from torpor and I wonder is anyone else has seen any bats flying recently, and if so, please could you let me know (d.w.forman@swansea.ac.uk).
