the lyrebird

In 2008 a male lyrebird took up residence in the bush immediately in front of the entrance to the vineyard. Lyrebirds are the best mimics in the animal kingdom, as illustrated in the BBC Wildlife video with David Attenborough. Our bird’s repertoire starts with an as yet unidentified but clearly mechanical click-click-click noise, followed in quick succession by a Cockatoo, a Little Raven, a Restless Flycatcher (aka the Scissors-Grinder) and a Currawong. Although John goes out every morning to chant  “Pinot Noir, Pinot Noir, Pinot Noir” at it, the bird takes a highly principled stance on the matter of advertising. But as long as it continues to eat bugs and leave the grapes alone, we have no complaints.

Under the Liquor control Act 1988 it is an offence: To sell or supply liquor to a person under the age of 18 years on licensed or regulated premises; or For a person under the age of 18 years to purchase, or attempt to purchase, liquor on licensed or regulated premises.
