Bat found in university building and rescued by member of local bat group. Fed until reached healthy condition and released back into the countryside close to where it was found.
No interactions present.
I never realised these were so tiny, your pic really shows the scale of it.
Thank you for your comment - I agree they are so tiny. I have recently found a new interest - bats! Going to join the local bat group and find out lots more. Yesterday I was at the Nottinghamshire Wildlife Trust where there was an even smaller 'bat in care' than the one I photographed at only around two weeks old. Fantastic to see but sadly I didn't take a photograph.
We can rule out Soprano as the face is too dark. The fur is also very dark (Nathusius fur tends to be paler) and the animal looks small compared to the hand. Therefore, I'm happy to agree to common pipistrelle. However, I do accept the photo is dark so the fur may not have been as dark as it looks and Nathusius have been recorded in the area but I still think it is most likely a common pipistrelle.
