The good:  A count of 960 Eastern Curlews was recorded last week at my local
wader roost north of Brisbane.  A few weeks earlier had seen perhaps several
hundred passing through on their way south - some wore Victorian leg bands.
This suggests that about 5% of the world population summer here with maybe
half that figure using the area as a staging post.

The bad:  Trucks have started spraying in preparation for the construction
of a canal estate which will completely destroy the whole roost site.

The indifferent:  Homo sapiens.

Cheers - Trevor.
