Myotis sp.

Emma, I showed your photo to someone I consider an expert yesterday and he ruled out Daubenton's. He confirmed it as a Myotis species though and said that Whiskered was most likely. Without more photos or measurements etc. we can't be absolutely sure though.

Myotis sp.

Agreeing through a process of elimination! - no horseshoe noseleaf, ears not joined at base or large (not barbastelle or grey/brown long-eared), doesn't look like a pipistrelle and location (not serotine, Leisler's or noctule).
