"The question is, are we happy to suppose that our grandchildren may never be able to see an elephant except in a picture book?" - David Attenborough

Sunday October 4 was low-key, as it ought to be. Tim was leading worship so he and Andrew went early to church which is held in a scout centre at Bibra Lake, a nature preserve. Andrew spent an hour wandering around with his binoculars. The first birds discovered were two kookaburras and yes they were in a gum tree.  While photographing the kookaburras, he was attacked by a magpie; apparently there was a nest nearby. No blood was spilt. In the evening Kathryn and Tim did the Bread Run; they pick up bread from a bakery at closing time and deliver it to some families in need. Then they had a supper date. We looked after Eden and Katie and had fun doing puzzles. It is good to be near and be able to help out!

 The Laughing Kookaburra is a rather large kingfisher and it sounds like a monkey. Can you see two??

 The assaulting magpie. These are everywhere and not to be trifled with.

Puzzle time with Grampie.
