Has he gone completely mad??
Is this useful, or a pain in the ###?
Does this have anything to do with birds?
Am I alone in feeling this way or other others sick of
the drivel....I was hoping it was Mr Russell who was
feeling depressed and leaving us....
Dear birding aussers, I am writing to you from Penrice
Saltfields in South Oz., this being probably the last
opportunity I have before having to fly off somewhere
else. I'm feeling quite depressed lately for a number
of reasons. One is that over the last couple of weeks
only one or two people have bothered to come and see
me in my resplendent breeding plumage - I'm really
much more attractive dressed this way than in the drab
old colours I had when I first arrived here. The
second reason I'm feeling a bit down, and incidentally
one of the reasons I'm still here, is that because I'm
so far off my usual migratory flight path that I don't
really know which way to go in order to get back to
where I belong - I really miss all my rellies up there
in the Americas you know. Is there anyone out there
who could direct me from where I am at 34 41 00s, 138
30 00e back in the direction of say Mexico or
somewhere near there ? I think 24 30 34n, 107 20 14w
would do me and I might meet up with some rellies
going north to Canada. It's no good following all the
Bar-tailed Godwits around here 'cos they'll all go
north up to that nasty cold Arctic region, brrr. That
would really make my feathers curl up. If anyone can
help or would even like to come and visit me I'm
Harold Hudwit (aka Limosa haemastica)
