A Cry in the Night

June 2018

After dinner as we sit outside enjoying the warm Cairns evening a curlew marches up to the caravan fixes us with a beady stare and gives us a serious talking to. Now for anyone who has never heard a curlew, well, it sounds like a cross between an unruly two year old child having a tantrum and a woman being murdered. After a minute of glaring at us and high decibel screaming Mr. Curlew moved on to repeat his performance to the poor folks outside the next caravan.

  1. First time I ever heard one was in caravan park at Wonga Beach, in the dead of night. Was before we had mobile phone, fortunately, because I seriously would have rung police and reported someone being murdered. Was too scared to go outside to phone box. Next day, when I asked about the disturbance, caravan park manager just about wet himself laughing.
