DAY 236: Conducting birds

24 Apr

Dawn chorus now, please.

THE birds in the Grampians get up a bit late for our liking – we’ve managed to get ourselves up before five, played “just one more corner” for ages to get the right ridge, got breakfast in one hand and camera all ready in the other for a corker sunrise – yet there’s just one desultory tweet going down.

We help them along a bit by squawking loudly and making some alluring Woody the Woodpecker calls. It soon wakes them up and gets a confused cacophony going.

Keeper? Yes, was great kicking off a multi-species tweetfest.
