It was sad news that greeted many late last week with social media community boards reporting the death of the beloved albino brush turkey known as ‘Albie’ who roamed the streets and bushland around Noosa’s Hastings Street. Extremely rare, Albie was a much-loved local around the region and Point Arkwright photographer Mike Drinkwater was lucky to photograph Albie on a few occasions. “I’m working with council now to have him buried and I’ve also been asked to make, place and word a plaque too.” Mike further went on to say that it was tragic what had happened to Albie. “Very blue about it all – RIP beautiful, feathered friend of so many.” Albie was sadly run over by a car and the sad news of Albie’s passing is a timely reminder for all to be mindful of our wildlife on our roads and to slow down – whilst they might not all be as unique as Albie, they all deserve to safely cross our streets. If you would like a commemorative print of beautiful Albie please visit Mike’s website for details at www.drinky.weebly.com.
