I’ve notices that a couple of the later postings are getting a little intimate (Swans on Nest) or risqué (see below).  I hope these are at the edge of the envelope, and we proceed no further in this direction.  I would also counsel against depictions of  intimacy with nestlings or dependent young in case the internet nestophilia police become interested.


On an entirely different subject you would notice the little ticky thing above the e in risqué in the first sentence (there it is again).  It’s presence has nothing to do with me, but surely demonstrates the wonders of modern software, and how it is so much smarter than the average user.

THE NATIONAL GULLERY OF AUSTRALIA, at Lotus Bay, near the yacht club.  This is a modest one, as gulleries go, the birds having nested in recent years on the decks and in the cockpits of the moored boats.  Compared to their raucous cousins at the coast, Canberra’s gulls, like its public servants, are of a retiring nature.  The coastal gulls (like public servants in this respect) favour takeaway pizza, pie crusts and French fries, while the Canberra birds get their tucker at the Mugga Lane landfill where a large flock can generally be found during working hours.
