Before anyone tells me this is a just a load of “crap” – just let me explain!
Retirees (or anyone for that matter I guess) can get up to some weird and interesting stuff when its comes to hobbies and interests. I am currently reading a lovely book by well known Australian birder Sean Dooley called the The Big Twitch in which he reveals some of the more crazy and interesting antics some serious bird twitchers get up to – a great read if you are interested. (By the way, I do not consider myself a twitcher!). But I must admit, I was a little amused and bemused when I saw fellow resident Graeme McAlpine out with his portable vacuum and brush n’ pan collecting the excretement of our common corvid, the Little Raven. Read on to find out why.
