I saw about four Kookaburas while I was coming in. Interesting, I thought,
this far from all water (the very dirty water in the fountain in Victoria 
Park and the far too clean water in the Swimming Pool excepted).No
Peregrines yet. My Willys are getting on well, although I almost always
only see one nowadays. A couple of more sightings of the "mystery bird" of
a couple of weeks ago confirmed that the bird was indeed a Red Wattlebird
(It showed me its wattle the other day too). And finally the magpies in
the neighbourhood are getting pretty good at imitating koels.

Home is so sad. It stays as it was left,
Shaped to the comfort of the last to go
As if to win them back. Instead, bereft
Of anyone to please, it withers so,
Having no heart to put aside the theft

And turn again to what it started as,
A joyous shot at how things ought to be,     
Long fallen wide. You can see how it was:     
Look at the pictures and the cutlery.     
The music in the piano stool. That vase.     
     - Home is so sad, Philip Larkin
