Hello Everybody
                  I do not know if there is an answer to this or not. The
Spectacled Flying-fox is thought, in many circles, to be endangered and many
volunteers take in the paralysis tick orphaned bats, several hundred a year,
to rear for later release from a central area in the Atherton Tablelands. A
feeding station is set for those bats that are not getting enough of their
natural food in the hope that they will eventually become totally wild
again. Two adult Barking Owls, who are probably feeding their young, have
stumbled into the feeding area of the bats with predictable results. The bat
rehab people are looking for ideas from our resourceful group. Can anyone help?
Cheers for now
