Hi Ian (and others)

The Australian National Wildlife Collection at CSIRO would love the specimen.

Ensure it is in a couple of plastic bags and in the freezer. On a piece of paper or card, note down the date, time, location (with a lat long reference if possible), and your name, and keep this with the specimen.

I will arrange to collect it from you.

I found a dead barn owl today in a shubbery in the forecourt of Parkwood Nursery. It looked quite fresh and apart from appearing to have a broken neck, it's virtually undamaged. Absolutely beautiful. It's in my freezer right now. I picked a few maggots out of an ear a little while ago, when I had another look at it, so I hope they don't take it over. Any suggestions as to where I should take it?
