Sample text

Not that he will think so; for the duffer is always blissfully unaware of just what a duffer he really is. Oddly enough, duffers are generally men. I have often found that your typical duffer is somebody in a fairly high-powered position in the workforce or an expert in another field who is used to being deferred to and not having his opinion questioned. Thus, there seem to be quite a few doctors, lawyers, captains of industry, and academics who fall into the duffer category. Once out at Werribee Sewage Farm I bumped into a former lecturer who had given me quite a bit of grief while I was at university (no doubt justified, because I was rather slack, though that didn’t excuse his supercilious manner towards me).

I am not one for superstition in any form, but whomsoever declares that a bird is a ‘dead cert’ is doomed to walk the earth as a zombie. Not the undead, brain-eating type of zombie, but the kind that walks around in circles for hours and hours in a futile search for a bird that, as you tell your increasingly sceptical birdwatching companions, was seen by someone else only yesterday. I learnt about dead certs the hard way ten years ago on a twitchathon (see TWITCHATHON), which has become known amongst our team as The Great Hooded Robin Debacle.

The kind of guy who can’t recognise an idea unless he thinks he has had it, he is the one who runs the dinghy aground on a sandbar because he claims he can see a passageway through the shallows to a place where there is bound to be loads of birds. He is the one who will organise a Night Parrot expedition to an area where it hasn’t been seen since 1863, because no one else has known how to look properly for them the way he reckons he can. It is the Captain who will suggest, within minutes of a bird not showing where it is supposed to be, that the group try somewhere else, usually a place that people have been checking out for years without success.
