They certainly walk amongst us, I have on several occasions had run in with
them especially when sitting quietly waiting with the camera for a good shot

and they walk in front of you and ask in a loud voice, "What is it"


I remember sitting quietly on the water hole at Mungerannie Pub up the
Birdsville Track one evening with a group of International Birdies and we
heard what
sounded like rifle shots and all the birds took off flying never to be seen
again and this guy appeared cracking a whip, when asked what did he think he
was doing

he replied "It is easier to see them when they are flying.    " Hello any
one home"

Did he learn his pedigree very quickly.


Fortunately these are few and far between and what John has described is a
hanging offence.


"Better to sit and watch than to tick and walk"
