Just returning from a difficult visit to my fast-failing parents in SA, and
camped a night by the Monoman Creek (an anabranch of the Murray) in the
Chowilla section of the Bookmark Biosphere Reserve (north of the river, in
far eastern SA). Against a fading pink-mauve sky, 20+ Regent Parrots flew to
roost along the creek past us, and moments later a dozen more landed for a
minute or so directly overhead.

Not sure which event put which in perspective, but it seems to balance
things a bit!
