I forward this to those Canberra people not on B-A who have gone to see the Grey-headed Lapwing or are proposing to do so........
How it got there - a SCANDAL report
Greetings All,

Apologies to Nevil for sending this on. I have no idea of the veracity of the following but I received this and it really is not fair, not to forward it to the list now. You or anyone else can make their own conclusions or investigations about this. If true and it seems more likely to me than that the bird arrived of its own power, this is not unprecedented. I was not being entirely sarcastic in my earlier message. If the bird arrived in northern Australia then natural occurrence makes sense. I recall the stuffed Night-Heron (years ago or is this a myth) that someone stuck in a tree somewhere in Britain to attract lots of British birding tourists, before eventually it was realised that the bird was dead and stuffed and nailed there
