Daubenton’s are Myotis bats with a brown topside and white underbelly. Also known as the water bat this species has big hairy feet to grab insects from the surface of the water. They can often be seen flying low over lakes and canals. Other bats, like pipistrelles, can be seen flying over water but Daubenton’s are usually the ones you see flying really low over the surface of the water.
