Took myself along to the last day of the first cricket test at the Gabba 
yesterday.Hopeful of seeing some wicket-falling action, but wasn't to be . In 
fact, I saw more birds than wickets which normally I'd be happy with, but not 
  The most common airborne objects were gashawks, regularly heading for a spot 
somewhere close to the east. Also seen were Welcome Swallow. Tree Martin, 
Australian White Ibis, Magpie Lark, Rainbow Lorikeet, Blue-faced Honeyeater, 
Torresian Crow and Rock Dove. What an unimpressive list, matched the cricket.
     I now have to find an exorcist to remove the Barmy Army's chant repertoire 
from what's left of my brain.
