I think Hello Birdy serves an educative purpose for people who know nothing about birds. It is certainly more informative than "reality TV"

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 program!

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.
