Common noctule

Nyctalus noctula


this bat was brought in by a local who found it on the floor. after a health check we couldn't find any problems. we gave him some food and let him stay in the old building of the bird rescue where we have a hive specially for bats. now he is living there.


maybe somebody know the exact species. I was searching for a dutch species of bats but couldn't find him. only one who look like him but should be 37 cm wingspan and this one was not that big. maybe somebody can help.
