This week I have been supervising exams in a room next to the nest, and several of the students have been traumatised by having to dodge the attacking, vociferous plovers. I've been amused at the sight of a big, bulky 20-year-old baulking at walking the only footpath access to the exam room for fear of attack.
The campus is looking good. It's been spruced-up because Open Day is coming up. Lawns have been mowed, shrubs trimmed, mulch spread. I hope the prospective students and their parents look beyond the environment to the quality of the education on offer and ask themselves 'Is this a good spot to park?' I think it is.
