Thanks for letting us know the story and your efforts for the bird and pity about that but it is not really unexpected. About Michael's suggestion, I wondered whether RSPCA would have the facilities or thoughts to offer a potentially important specimen to ANWC at CSIRO. Maybe Mark Clayton could advise on this. Probably such repository is as useful as a photograph. Local breeding of the species is still a novelty and of interest.

Many thanks to all the replies on our injured Koel.  We followed the majority advice and took it into the RSPCA at Weston.  They were great but unfortunately, the bird died soon after.
I didn't take a photo, which I kicked myself for (gently) afterwards.
