Wart-Biter, Wiltshire, Sunday 13th September

I've always wanted to see a Wart-biter and have looked for them on a few occasions in the past with no luck. So today we drove to Wiltshire to try again. From the parking place it was a long trek to the area where they occur. Once we got to the location we started searching. It took a while but with the help of my Bat detector I finally found my first ever Wart-biter, a smart looking male.
