Lytton Roost March 2012

March and April are the months when migratory birds leave the Southern Hemisphere and travel to the Arctic and Siberian areas of the Northern Hemisphere. They arrive when the snow and ice are melting and vast numbers of insects are hatching enabling the birds to mate and breed in preparation for the return journey in August, with their offspring following up to a month later. How sad it is that so many of the resting and feeding places on these routes are vanishing as these areas are drained and “developed”. The latest figures for the Eastern Asian Australian flyover have declined by 20-70% over recent years.
How fortunate we are to have on our doorstep at the Port of Brisbane, an area where we can still see so many of these incredible waders. And that is why on Saturday at 6am Jeff, Marg, Toby and I met up and were soon on our way to the Port of Brisbane.

Why does attentiveness to nature matter? In a very fundamental sense, we are what we pay attention to. Paying heed to beauty, grace, and everyday miracles promotes a sense of possibility and coherence that runs deeper and truer than the often illusory commercial, social "realities" advanced by mainstream contemporary culture. ... Our attention is precious, and what we choose to focus it on has enormous consequences. What we choose to look at, and to listen to--these choices change the world. As Thich Nhat Hanh has pointed out, we become the bad television programs that we watch. A society that expends its energies tracking the latest doings of the celebrity couple is fundamentally distinct from one that watches for the first arriving spring migrant birds, or takes a weekend to check out insects in a mountain stream, or looks inside flowers to admire the marvelous ingenuities involved in pollination. The former tends to drag culture down to its lowest commonalities; the latter can lift us up in a sense of unity with all life.
