Contrary to my Friday report we didn't get to Tidbinbilla today. See, my busy little Audubons didn't go to bed until 1:30 this morning! Accordingly, they were late reporting to the mess for breakfast. Tsk, Tsk! In the old Army days I would charged them with dilly-dallying!
During brunch, they discovered that Constable - impressions of land sea and sky was showing at the NGA. So, he-who-must-obey accompanied his little Audubons to the NGA and we loved it. We had Devonshire Tea in the NGA gardens. Wonderful! Afternoon tea, however, was interrupted by a pesky little Rufous Fantail that insisted upon performing an aerial ballet within three metres of our table. Annoying thing!
Emily took delight in feeding crumbs to a bevy of House Sparrows. Apparently, Passer domesticus does not occur in her Sri Lanka town. A birdwatcher wouldn't be dead for quids would he/her?
