I’ve just returned from a very cathartic escape to the countryside.
It was a time spent doing a whole lot of not-too-much. Where the main plan was having no plans. It was a time to attune to the country rhythms and timings. Getting up with the daylight and going to bed at the suggestion of the moonlight and stars. It was a blissful time.
There is much to share from my recent trip in some upcoming posts so stay tuned.
What do you call a gathering of cockatoos? A Din!?
Well I don’t actually know what the correct terminology is – a flock perhaps (Google will know) – but whatever the collective term is it should be written in UPPER CASE.
A lone squawking cockatoo is loud enough but as an ensemble they are quite deafening. On the odd occasion hundreds of the birds would roost in the trees surrounding the cottage I was staying in. The sight of them flying in from the surrounding terrain was quite awe-inspiring.
On one of the days as the wall of noise approached I got out in the midst of the cacophony with my DSLR and took some photos. Here are a couple of the images. Believe me it’s better without the sound!
