Description

New Zealand long-tailed bats, with sound modified to audible pitch by Batbox bat detector.

Recorded at about 9:15 pm. Not definite visual sightings, as the bats were between branches and never seemed to move above the trees so that we could see them against the sky. We did see movement between branches of something too big to be moths, so they must have been the bats, but we could not make out their shapes.
