I recently found this little guy floating on the water on top of our pool cover.
As far as I can see, I think it's a Brown long-eared Bat (Plecotus auritus). I'm used to seeing our little Pipistrelle Bats, but I've never seen one of these before.
According to my book, they are not uncommon across Europe, but are not found in Greece or Southern Italy.
What a shame that it had to end up drowned on the pool cover.
Those ears are amazing. Do you have these where you live?
