Bat
Description:

I doubt whether a picture of this quality will be sufficient for anyone to identify the species, but here goes. The first appearance of the year from our resident bats tonight.

Well Done ...

... I'd say - no easy task to get a picture of anyone flying, let alone a bat at night.

Pipistrelle seems most likely

The size and shape of the bat looks right.If you have a small colony under the weatherboards then pipistrelles are also the most likely candidates.

Right shape and apparent shape for pipistrelle. Unusual to get colour on a flying bat picture, well done.
