Daubenton's Bat Myotis daubentonii
 
Identification: Hunts for insects low over water. Takes insects from the surface. Sound recording.
Information: Distribution: widespread throughout England and Wales. A wonderful site to watch several feeding over water in low light on a calm summer's evening.
Similar species: Other bats hunt over water, but not with the distinctive, consistently low flight pattern of Daubenton's.
