No wonder they think I'm batty
Sorry about the video quality, but these Flying foxes live across the road from my place in Bellingen. Fortunately, the noise is only as loud as this when you are standing among the bats, as I was when I shot this on my little camera. From my house I don't find the noise unpleasant, and it comes in just several sessions a day with greatly reduced volume, even with my windows open. I only noticed the sound for the first few days that I lived here. From sunset to dawn the bats have gone hunting and gathering over quite large distances, so noise is not a problem.
