Photo-bombed by Bats at sunset

Time-lapse with Sony RX100 MK3.

I took a pew down by Benidorm Harbour the other night and set up a tripod with my little Sony RX100 MK3 to capture the sunset.
I was using the software which is available from the Sony store and was quite happy with what I was seeing in my viewfinder.
This was taken over about an hour, it's 600 frames shot as RAW only, but there is a choice to let the software do a video instead.

Benidorm Harbour sunset, Spain.Time-lapse of the view from Benidorm Harbour with the Sony RX100mk3. One hour and 600 frames for 26 seconds of footage.
The RAW files were imported into Lightroom, where I edited them and then compiled them at 24fps 1080 HD (not shown at that quality here) using the slideshow module.
If I go back down to the harbour I would probably change the composition, and maybe use my Canon 6d instead, but I'm quite happy with the result from the Sony.

My only problem was, that as it started to get darker we were surrounded by bats! They can be seen throughout the clip as specs, and the only way to get rid of them would have been to edit each individual frame which they were on, and, with 600 frames it would be quite a chore.
If this had been a commission, I would have course gone through every frame.

Here are some frames with them on (size reduced for speed of loading).
