Menacing cackling at 3:45 am

Dear Wendy

It's your friendly neighbourhood kookaburras here. Just a quick note to say how much we are enjoying providing your early morning wake up call service this year. We realise that in previous years we have been a little slack as it seems that you were able to sleep through the night in summer and not wake til at least five. We are seeking to remedy that ridiculous situation. Rest assured that this morning will not be the last where we begin our menacing cackling at 3:45am. We figure that if we're awake then everybody else should be as well. It's not just you we're waking up. It's all the other birdlife in the immediate vicinity. So not only do you get to hear our laughter piercing the night air, but the other birds can join in the pre-dawn chorus, sustaining it while we are taking our big breaths in readiness for our next big shout out. Anyway, don't fret, we shan't be stopping this anytime soon, so you can look forward to a long hot summer of waking up really early.

Kind Regards
The Kookaburras out the back.

I'm pretty sure they will let up once they've sorted out who is the king kookaburra and indulged their hormonal impulses for the year.

I'm hoping you're right!

Air-con in your bedroom (and having it switched on) is the only solution... it also blocks out the sound of neighbours whipper snipping at 6am... :)
