Description

Three bats suddenly emerged 25 minutes post dusk and they appeared to come from the palm trees in front of our tin roofed shacks. The shacks are really hot and i'm sure that they are unsuitable as potential roosts. These bats appeared really low 1m from the ground, foraged for 10 minutes then disappeared, they came back 2-3 times appearing to suggest that they were roosting here. I think they may have been roosting within the foliage on the trunks of the palm trees. Interestingly, i have not had these bats here before (i think). Thanks
