The small, (6-12g) Daubenton’s bat has a wide distribution ranging throughout the Palaearctic over the whole of Europe, Russia, Central Asia and outer India. Individuals feed almost exclusively over water, usually in the 0.3 1.0 m airspace above the water by either aerial hawking insects from the air or gaffing prey from the surface using their large feet or tail membranes (Fig.1.).
