Further to my little lecture on perspective last night, another cautionary tale:

Don't assume that vehicles parked in a known birding hotspot are looking for 
birds. Stopped at the well-publicized Banded Lapwing spot on Beach Rd at Avalon 
(Vic) this morning and noticed one vehicle was empty - then asked the man and 
woman in the second vehicle if they were looking for the Banded Lapwings (I 
hadn't been able to spot any as I drove out to WTP earlier). They gave me an 
odd look, said "No!" and wound their window back up. I didn't bother hanging 
round to try to spot the lapwings ....
