Sorry, I slipped into some Ocka there.
A bower bird is an Aust native that builds a huge nest out of stuff that it nicks.
Know to steal cloths of your line, pegs ( particularly blue ones ) stuff from the garage.
Hence a person who accumulates a lot of rubbish = bower bird.

Nothing like a magpie.
We have our own magpies but they don't steal much, mainly material to build their nests.
They get aggressive during nesting season and are known to attack unwary pedestrians and motorcyclists, particularly posties.
Bower birds will steal anything, even your lunch if you leave it unattended.

Long since out of print now of course, but if you can find a copy (they do turn up in all kinds of places) BSA TWIN MOTOR CYCLES by D W MUNRO is a very useful book. Published by C Arthur Pearson under their Motor Cycle Maintenance and Repair Series. The edition that I have is from from 1960. The book even shows you how to assess chain wear. Virtually all British bikes from the "classic" era are catered for in this series. D W Munro actually worked for BSA by the way.

turned up on trademe, dust covers seen better days but a nice little red hardback book
very good wee book for the library. Yay  *wink2*
