Any indication what happened to the bat? electrocuted by powerlines?
Please take care not to handle sick or injured bats - contact ACT Connect or your local Wildlife care group.

It had been dead for a while when I found it. It may have been heat stress as it was quite hot the day before, it wasn't close to powerlines.
