H Bat

A lady came to my house and handed over a tiny, wet bat. She'd found him swimming in 6 inches of water at the bottom of a 200 litre (44gallon) drum.

He's a little forest bat, and judging by his size he's another youngster with a shiny new flying licence.I'll have to weigh him when he dries out, but right now he's 3.5 grams. I guess he'll dry out to 3 grams. He's a little thin but not too thin. A few days dry R&R should have him flying again.

What is it about young bats and water? It must be a combination of the hot days and poor flying skills.

Anyway. H bat needs a name.
