Bats in the Belfry

I’ve moved into a new house with a new garden (more on that later).  It is a more established garden than my old one, with large trees and a jungly feel.  It also has many more insects and animals, including these super bats who take off each evening at dusk and can be watched from the comfort of the balcony, drink in hand.

In the third photograph, it looks as if the bat is holding a youngster on its belly.  Any idea if it is common for a bat to fly around with its young?  Also, please post any more information on these fascinating creatures in the comment section.
