Pipsqueak

This little guy is either a common pipistrelle (Pipistrellus pipistrellus) or a Soprano pipistrelle (Pipistrellus pygmaeus). I suspect the latter as the face of a common pipistrelle usually has a darker band (like a roobers mask) across it, however the only way to be ceratin would be to measure the frequency of the squeaks. A soprano pipistrelle emits his squeaks at a higher frequency than a common pipistrelle. Whatever the case he's still cute.
