I've always loved bats. We are very lucky to have a bunch of bats ( I don't know the collective noun for bats) live in a gum tree in our garden, and there are more in the park two doors down from where I live. They are such cheeky little creatures and remind me of a group of school children as they jostle and squabble amongst themselves, all while hanging upside down.
One of the most magical moments in my life was when I was at a Nick Cave concert, at the Myer Music Bowl, on a hot summer evening. At dusk, huge numbers of bats left the Botanic Gardens ( just adjacent to the Bowl for those of you who don't know Melbourne) to seek food for the night. They flew overhead, seemingly in time with Nick's haunting music. It was wonderful.
