2012 08 Sea EagleEven the most powerful birds aren’t always successful predators, as those who went on the August bird walk discovered. We always manage to see something interesting and this time it was the sight of a large white-bellied sea eagle catching, dropping, retrieving and finally losing a fish… but let’s start at the beginning.....   
Led by Julie, our group of Susan, Raymond, Jim, Ros, Gail, Jeff and Gill headed for the base of Mt Barney. After a quick breakfast, and having been joined by John who had spent the night camping at Mt Barney Lodge, we headed up the steep pinch that starts the walk through Mt Barney National Park, around the bottom of the mountain.
The low temperature climbed with us and soon we were ripping off our sweaters and jackets.

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.
