2012 12 05 Riemore Egret-Lge Though it was tipped to be a hot morning, an early start for our nature walk on December 5 meant we had finished birding by 8.30 am – there wasn’t much more “nature” to look at down at Riemore Downs, but the water birds were plentiful.
Julie, Susan, Jim, Ros, John and Jeff left the VIC on the dot of 6 a.m. and spent a pleasant couple of hours meandering around the small lakes and reed beds at Riemore, to the constant trilling of orioles and the squawking of friarbirds (Noisy and Little), Little Corellas and lorikeets (Rainbow and Scaly-breasted). A koel called intermittently in the distance, to remind us that summer was well and truly here, while dozens of Purple Swamp Hens scattered before us.

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.
