I suggest you contact WIRES Sydney or Blue Mountains branch as they would
probably have more information. My understanding (and this might be
completely wrong as it's just hearsay) is that many die in winter, at least
in the colder climates, as that is the time when they use their reserves of
stored fat, thus receiving a sudden dose of environmental poisons which
have been gradually building up and concentrating in their body fat.

Perhaps someone else on the list has more information.
