Having a few errands to do in Civic this afternoon I was wandering
through the car park next to the Police Station whe a begging call
attracted my attention to one of the exotic trees tastefully
positioned between the cars.  The begger tirned out to be a Superb
Fairy Wren and was duly fed by an adult.

Still with a little time on my hands I swung by Stage 88 to check the
fruit bats.  They were quite active: possibly stirred up by an
atrocious amount of ruckus coming from some folk preparing for some
event sponsored by FM 104.7.  The only good outcome of the hullaballoo
they were creating was my realising that, by comparison with the
electronic efforts of the radio station, the calls of the bats were
quite melodious (and at a far more sociable number of decibels).

To answer a commment by (I think) Marnix, if the bats survive the
sonic warfare of this afternooon they will find a few thousand bucks
worth of crackers to be relatively peaceful.
