Dear all,

   The Wattle-bird I reported yesterday is serenading me with regular
chuckling interrupted by bill-clicking (as regular as a cuckoo clock) 
today from the same tree. I suspect it is nesting there. It turns out to
have grey eyes, so no anomolies to report here. Thanks to all those who
responded to my query.

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
