thanks Ashish... My little point and shoot did a great job, I think, as they were high up in the tree.

Thanks Sachin Zaveri. Just looked up about the Little Cormorant on Wikipedia, and it seems they often share trees with Flying Foxes! There were a lot of them in the tree, also, all with young in their nests.

It was amazing to see the flying foxes living so close to the birds and their nests! All in the tree together...

They are both Global so you can find them on the Global missions page - along with others that may be of interest to you!

That must have been amazing to see!
You should also consider adding this to the Bat Monitoring mission.

thanks Karin. They were in a tree that was crowded with the nests of several different birds, plus many of these flying foxes. Quite a site to see, and hear. The flying foxes squabbled like anything with one another...
