Back at our place the birds have beaten a retreat in the face of the flying fox invasion. Normally at this time of year we would have noisy cockatoos feasting on the pine cones and spiky pods of the Liquid Amber. After the racket the bats are making even the squawking of cockatoos seems pleasant.
I don't think those bats are going to go away any time soon. See the valley below, it's full of eucalypts in full Autumn flower and that is their food.
