It was very overcast and there was thunder about, In the last few weeks some bats have taken up residence under a fascia board on our house, This one came out for about an hour until the weather improved and it became very bright.Is this unusual behaviour?

The Reremouse's picture

I would tentatively agree...

Generally does look like a pip, but can't see the tragus or post calcareal lobe - but whatever species it is, this bat is very underweight and dehydrated - if you look at the pinched in area above their hips - this is where they carry their weight, and this bat has very little going on in this area. Poor little dude.
