Bat watching at Mulu NP

In mulu now. Fine weather so far, knock on wood! Went to deer and lang caves yesterday and just before dusk saw millions of bats streaming out of the gigantic cave to feed on insetcs. The bats would fly around and make a fast spinning spiral at the cave mouth then a long black stream (sometimes two!) of bats would leave the cave a few thousand at a time. The spiral would be 'refille' by more bats and the whole thing repeats until just before the sun sets. Amazing sight! Will post photos went I get back.
