We could see a large group of "birds" flying.  We've noticed them a couple of times, but today we drove closer to them.  They were not birds, they were bats. We tried to take a picture of them to show how many there were, but we're not sure they show up very well.  They were out for a couple of hours today.  We will have to observe and see if they come out every morning.


  1. Remember the Battembang bats? Same same but different.

  2. Would you add your bat photos as a citizen-science observation to the AfriBats project on iNaturalist?:

    AfriBats will use your observations to better understand bat distributions and help protect bats in Africa.

    Please locate your picture on the map as precisely as possible to maximise the scientific value of your records.

    Many thanks!

    PS: these are straw-coloured fruit bats (Eidolon helvum)
