Nice to hear from you John.  As a member of a semi-traditional Aboriginal 
clan I'm supposed to look after birds anyway.  And my husband has Pied 
Heron Dreaming.  Mind you I'm not too impressed with those of his 
relatives who live in the sewage pond and supplement their diet by diving 
into the raw sewage channel and feeding off the drowned cockroaches.  

The blessing of native animals in the Anglican Cathedral went off a treat 
last Sunday.

Unfortuantely my prize exhibit, a huge Huntsman was lost the day before.  
I'd lent it to the Dean for a publicity shot but obviously fazed by the 
crocodile he was holding under his other arm, it ran up his sleeve.  In 
the ensuing panic it dropped to the ground and ran away.  The journalist 
from the local paper was of no help at all; for some reason she wanted to 
conduct her interview from halfway down the park.  

Lost for an animal to bring I was reduced to hunting desperately around 
the garden for a Wolf Spider.  Unfortunately I could only find tiny ones. 
Is it possible our resident scrubfowl is eating them?

Incidentally, nice trip to Darwin sewage ponds today with the gerygones 
behaving nicely and a Flock Pigeon.
