Observation - Bat rescued from pond - UK and Ireland. Description: This poor little bat was mistaken for a frog initially, as it tried and tried to re-launch itself from the water/pond weed surface!

This poor little bat was mistaken for a frog initially, as it tried and tried to re-launch itself from the water/pond weed surface!
After wading knee deep through a muddy pond margin, I retrieved this soggy little creature, and let it warm up a little in the sun. I hung it on the branch of a nearby tree, where it gathered its bearings and flitted off, circling the pond once and flying off looking none the worse for wear. Phew! :)
