Soon we started to see groups of bats making their way out the cave, a few at a time at first and then suddenly they just started streaming out, in a long line, spiraling and moving together in one motion over the fields and towards the sunset. There were two million insect eating bats in that cave and for 45 minutes we watched in awe as they headed out for the feast. It was ...

After any short break, these guys (except some) would shout "LET'S GO GANGNAM STYLE" and start running to the next bit, burn up and soon get over taken by me and some others who were more sensible.
