Hi all,

Trawler bycatch bird deaths must be fought against. But jumping from 30 deaths 
seen in five species (13 deaths; 11; 3; 2; 1) from 14 trawlers to 18,000 for a 
fishery seems to sum more as emotional overkill than 'crude extrapolation'. 
Trying to draw meaning from samples 3; 2; and 1 seems further to weaken the 
'cause'. Any statisticians out there?

Meanwhile, spotted first Latham's Snipe of season in Ingham area today. And the 
solo out-of-place Rufous Songlark is maturing well since turning up in Tyto 
Wetlands on May 28.
Cheers, Tony Ashton
