Accousitc Sounds of the “Haunted & Grieving” Casuarina Tree – West Australian Aboriginal Legend

This is the tree I have been filming the Willie Wagtail Babies grow up in… see here all episodes:
https://www.youtube.com/user/LostTreasureComAU/search?query=willie+wagtails

The Tree and Its Voices: What the Casuarina Says

The tree known popularly and scientifically as the casuarina has been consistently noticed for the sounds made as wind passes through its unusual foliage of needles and leaf scales. The acoustic experience of the casuarina — with subspecies found throughout Australia — has been represented as ‘haunted’, ‘grieving’ and voicing the secret language of initiates. This essay traces intriguing conceptual and aesthetic representations of the ‘voice’ and its listeners found across both Aboriginal and white Australian cultures in traditional English verse, Aboriginal prose narrative, accounts of cultural practices, and hybrid blends of all three. The essay adopts the notion of ‘listening to listening’ to set out the many forms of story the tree’s sounds generate their contribution to identifying places, and to suggest a specific Aboriginal song-line appears to underlie the divergent replications of tree-‘voice’ across southern Australia.

he feathers on the bird. She oak foliage means that it is often mistaken for a pine tree, and like pine trees, she oaks have little cones full of seeds. For these reasons, she oaks attract many native birds. Black cockatoos like the she oak cones, while finches and rainbow lorikeets are more interested in the seed. Willie Wagtails, Pee Wees and Butcher birds all favour she oaks for nesting trees. Don suggests that large groups of she oaks set them off to best advantage, and foliage of a bank of she oaks creates a wonderful whistling sound when the wind blows through it.

She oak foliage is not made up of leaves, but rather very fine ridged branches or ‘branchlets’. Don showed that when a branchlet was pulled apart and looked at under a lens, you can see the tiny teeth-like points, which are the true leaves, at the end of each branchlet. The number of teeth will tell you which species the tree belongs to. These branchlets and reduced leaves give casuarinas a great advantage in the harsh Australian climate. The gaseous exchange that plants require to live occurs at stomates, which on other plants are located on the surface of leaves. In she oaks, the stomates are found on the inside furrows of the ridges of each branchlet, which means that little water is lost by the plant.

Water loss is further minimised by the plant as the branchlets fall to form a thick blanket underneath the tree. Branchlets do not poison the soil, as it was once thought, but rather act as a wonderfully rich mulch which suppresses weeds and helps to stabilise soil from erosion. The roots of the she oak actually produce a kind of free fertiliser by taking nitrogen from the air and putting it into the soil.

Old Metal Detecting Find – Maybe WW2 Spitfire? WW2 British or German Aircraft? Unsure

Possibly a small keepsake of a WW2 Pilot who bought a piece of maybe a downed WW2 Spitfire or maybe an enemie aircraft from Germany Luftwaffe.

I found this ages ago, originally thought it was an old car or motorbike gauge, then I thought 260kp/h???

So I asked a local WW2 Veteran in town who served in the British Airforce … he also has dementia.

He served in British Air Force, around Spitfires etc. and tells me it could be Spitfire Related… unsure? Maybe WW2 Spitfire? WW2 Australian or British or German Aircraft?

Unsure… no expert here, and no luck on google, maybe someone can help me out to id it.
