NOTES: (Recordist's Tape #14A & B. Time: 1130-1630. Breeding Status: Breeding. Behav. Context: Echo-locating clicks. Gen. Habitat: Caves with breeding colony.) This cave was approx. 5 m. high and much more extensive in behind. I was inside where the breeding/nesting pairs were and there were some incubating. Individuals were coming and going (in and out) all day. Numbers increased as evening came in. They call more at the cave mouth--and click as they go further into the cave.
Note some few sequences are copied for BLOWS LONDON.
