The Dreaded Budgie Plague

Whilst twitchers are euphoric, there is speculation as to whether the government will have to introduce budgie culling in Outback areas of Australia. A zoologist in Central Australia says he has never seen so many budgerigars congregating around waterholes. With water already a scarce commodity in many areas, the question naturally arises as to whether we can afford to have budgies drinking the precious stuff without restriction.

Writing about the things that interest me helps me to discover what I think. One of my loves is the Australian Outback, and I travel out there often, and when possible take friends with me.

    Poor budgies! Their “plague” is a natural occurence in Oz. Even in their thousands they drink a miniscule amount compared to the water that evaporates all day every day. Give ’em a break!
