Despite going for long walks with her owner and sometimes attending an energetic Boot Camp , Nora , a cheeky Jack Russell , just gets fatter. Why? Because Nora often scatters flocks of Lorikeets and Curlews being fed by the kind German Queen of the Jungle , just down the road, and hoes into the bird food , which is actually dog tucker, so is very tempting . Nora , in search of a snack , her nose to the ground , invaded the Curlew sanctuary in our backyard and was chased away. She is shown , not far from the latest nest, with two eggs , confronted by a Curlew . The defending Curlew walked about in threatening attack mode , wings outspread, ready for a shoot out , for a long time just in case greedy Nora returned for seconds.
The two chicks evicted by the parents to make way for the next batch have joined a large band not far away .They turn up from time to time for a feed but are quickly chased away by their parents.
