I’m away for work at the moment and have been thinking about the unusual experience of dining alone. (There were others elsewhere in the restaurant but this section was quiet.) It’s very odd to have dinner without family discussion and you take a lot of more notice of your surroundings.

I was thrilled to spot a lyrebird in Morton National Park today! It sounded like various native birds were making noises in the same area, until I worked out that just one lyrebird was mimicking all of them. There was some traffic noise nearby but it could still be heard well.
