Can anyone identify this for me? I apologise for the poor quality of the photos, but I was woken up by the sound of flapping to discover this little creature flying around my bedroom and at 4 am with a compact digital camera it's not the best of conditions to take a perfect portrait! I managed to catch the bat with a plastic kitchen strainer and a piece of cardboard and I took a couple of shots of it before I put it out of my window. It was quite large with its wings outstretched - about the size of a sparrow, or maybe even slightly bigger.
