It's 3 years since I've visited this colony - http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/360... and I was horrified only a couple of days ago to see the camp devoid of any bats. I don't know where they were, but 2 days later and they're back. This colony looks very healthy. Back in 2012 when I first saw this colony, it was very small and stressed due to relocation and hot weather. 4 years later, and the colony is massive. Here's the original spotting - http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/228...
Roosting in Casuarina trees and other natives, in a large colony at North Avoca on the NSW Central Coast. Situated near a large coastal lagoon.
In NSW, this species was listed as vulnerable under the Threatened Species Conservation Act 1995.
