The Great Oz Eddventure #40 – Bats in the tree

Last week, approaching midnight one evening, we heard some strange high pitch cackling noises outside.  We had heard these noises for the past couple of nights so we were intrigued to find out what was making the noises; we ventured outside and saw some shapes moving around and within a tree.  But we weren’t the only ones intrigued – a couple of our neighbours also emerged outside to have a look too!
With torches and binoculars we soon realised that the shapes were bats, and large ones at that!  We couldn’t get that clearer a look at them, but assumed they must be Fruit Bats/Flying Foxes.  It felt great to have these creatures in our back yard!!
But come the next night they had vanished and we have not seen them since…
