Thank you all for your comments and corrections, I have added the details. Yes Katy, Fruit Bat is a generic name for several species I think, but they are not my speciality! They were close to the Botanical Gardens and in the same group of trees as the Frogmouth.

Hi Alice, they're part of a very large flock in the Botanical Gardens.

Malcolm, I edited your spotting to change it from invertibrate to mammal.
