Birds of Australia – The renowned Lyre Bird, Master of mimicry, native to Australia and a bird of interesting habits.
It is Saturday afternoon and I am sitting in an aeroplane, flying across the Great Australian Bight, over the sea. This morning I flew 130 miles from Sydney to Adelaide. This afternoon I am flying 1340 miles from Adelaide to Perth.
It is a lovely sunny day.
Later on this afternoon we shall be flying over the Nullarbor Desert. I hope you can find these places on the map.
It was good to speak to you on the telephone on Christmas Eve. You spoke very clearly: we were 14000 miles apart.
Be good, work hard at school.
