what size is it please, and

what size is it please, and do you have any other shots showing the claws or ears? It's probably pipistrelle but might be daubenton's

pip - maybe

I can't see the tragus (in the ear) in this pic and there isn't much idea of size so hard to say but the general characteristics look right for a pip. I think daubentons have sharper snouts and paler coloured faces than this
