these were flying just above water on a river which made us think (with the aid of a bat detector) that they are daubenton's bats.

yes, there wasnt a technique to it, i just focused on the water and waited until one flew past and took it as quick as possible :) took a long time to get anything though!

Daubenton's bat

Just the behaviour of flying low over water is a good indicator of this being a Daubenton's bat. These are good photos, it is extremely difficult to photograph bats on the move and not get a really bad blur.
