Friday 13 May 2011: Rainbow Flock
"Oh Lord please don't burn us don't kill or toast your flock Don't put us on the barbecue or simmer us in stock, Don't bake or baste or boil us or stir-fry us in a wok"
- Monty Python
In the evenings lately, dozens of rainbow lorikeets have been flitting - very noisily - around the trees near the station. They swoop and whirl about, chattering all the while. This evening a whole bunch whizzed over the station platform and over towards the trees just outside. They are extremely quick, so this is a pretty crappy shot, but it's a record of something really beautiful - so it'll do. 8)
