White-winged Bat in Rwanada
This bat was flying over the Masaka wetland (Kigali, Rwanda) at dusk. It had strikingly white wings – I’ve never seen a bat like it. I have very few African bat resources available to me, but see that there is a species on the Rwandan bat list called White-winged Serotine (and a Google image search shows a similarly patterned animal). If anyone has any thoughts on the topic, I would love to hear them.
Sorry for the poor quality of the image — it was getting dark and the bat was moving quickly)

Sure looks like it. There used to be a colony at the gas station in Queen Elizabeth NP in Uganda, also in a wetland area.
