In the Blue Mountains…

Some recent derring-do – I had a “work” trip to the Blue Mountains to learn how to handle a 4×4 in the outback.  This was truly awful, as you can imagine.  We seized the day and made a long weekend of it.

I crossed off a lifetime goal by hearing the song of a superb lyrebird, as per David Attenborough – awesome!  We could hear the male mimicking the songs of lots of birds in the forest, like magpies and kookaburras. No chainsaws or automatic cameras though, which is not entirely disappointing. Lucy actually managed to see him displaying, although I missed him.  We also saw male and female satin bowerbirds. Absolutely fantastic.
