... There was about five seconds (seemingly much longer) when I wondered if I had breathed my last. No one needed to do the heimlich manoeuvre on me as my own body worked out what to do with great force (and I apologised to Marna afterwards).

A travel blog entry by vandna on Nov 02, 2014

When have I ever paid such attention to birds? Yet, here I awoken to a chattering of birds and signed up to go on a birding tour. I suppose that if they make the effort to create such brilliant plumage and chic haircuts and whatever manner of array, then I should sit up and notice, and I have.
