Today's "Guardian" has a report with photos of a Nicobar pigeon which
was not only seen but captured in the Kimberley, having 'blown in'  from
Southeast Asia.  Apparently its fate is being discussed...  I hope
nobody decides that it's a biological menace to Australia.  No-one has
ever taken any action against such self-introductions as the Spotted
Whistling-Duck and the Cattle Egret.  I would rather this new bird on
the Australian List were left in peace where it was - until the
twitchers start to chase it.
