Lesser Horseshoe Bat
This tiny bat is the smaller of the two UK species. It is called the lesser horsehoe bat Rhinolophus hipposideros. It is so called because the nose-leaf that it uses to broadcast its calls, at 115 kHz, is in the shape of a horseshoe.

This bat was found in a transport cafe toilet and had obviously hitched a ride on some lorry. There is no known colony of this species in Sussex so, as it was winter, the bat was healthy and a good weight, it was released into a safer hibernation site, out of harms way.
