Barking OwlAlthough the temperature for the day was forecast to be in the thirties, nine members turned up for the walk.  After an early start we drove to Hinterland Regional Park in Hardys Road, Mudgeeraba, a parkland of 62 hectares with mostly grassed walking tracks.  This area was the first Mudgeeraba land settled by Europeans in 1869.  It has undergone many changes since then from timber cutting, clearing and grazing; disturbance by construction of water pipelines and powerlines has aided the invasion of weeds.  A very active bushcare group is working with Council to restore some of the natural bushland areas within the parkland.  We recorded 42 species.  After a very welcome morning tea, we drove to Schuster Park, Tallebudgera.  The day was heating up!

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.
