Fruit Bats – 1’01”

The sounds of fruit bats flying overhead and screeching in trees is a nightly occurrence here on the east coast of Australia. For some people this can be a bit unsettling, however I’m really attracted to the low swooping sound of their 1 metre wings. This clip was recorded when one of the trees in our garden came into bloom – the nectar from its flowers proving irresistible to the local colony of bats.
