These astonishing photographs show the scenes as eight million bats flock together in one of Africa’s largest and most spectacular mammal migrations.
The 6ft-wingspan fruit bats couldn’t have found a tinier corner of the continent to live on – just one acre of forest at the Kasanka National Park in Zambia.
