It turns out that these bats are the Grey-headed Flying Foxes common in eastern Australia. Because of the heavy rains in Queensland and New South Wales this spring and summer, more bats have migrated to the cities in search of food. There are an estimated 20,000 bats in the Brisbane Botanic Garden alone. Unfortunately, these bats are a threatened species and need our protection.
