"I can remember coming here as a boy in old wooden boats tobe taught by my grandparents and my parents. I'll be be 57 this year and I have missed only one year when my daughter leanne was born. Mutton birding is my life. To me It's a gathering of our fella's where we sit and yarn we remember and we honour all of those birders who have gone before us. Sometimes I just stand and look out across these beautiful islands remembering my people and I know I'm home. It makes me proud to be a strong Tasmanian black man. This is something that they can never take away from me."
