Greetings All

Alas and alack!  

Fay and I were birding Pioneer Park [central Nanango] and only just managed to 
get back home for 1830 hours [6.30 pm].  While Fay put on the kettle I switched 
on the television ready to watch “Hello Birdy” -only the “idiot box” was, for 
some reason, tuned into Channel 10.  My thumb moved across the control panel 
[Fay assures me channel-surfing is a purely male obsession] to locate ABC 1.  
In that moment I noted that the screen was showing me a snow-covered mountain 
scene: I have a long-standing passion with mountains – no doubt something to do 
with all those Snow Buntings I failed to see in my halcyon days.  I then 
recognized the dulcet tones of David Attenborough and I was hooked.  Fay is one 
with me on the question of “Hello BIrdy”.

To improve matters further, at 1930 hours [7.30 pm], on SBS, there was a tiger 

Today’s television guide informs me that Attenborough will be back next 
Saturday and that the tigers will be replaced by leopards.

So its “Goodbye BIrdy”, hello effective wildlife documentaries.
