I don't think they are allowed to send dinky-di Aussies to an offshore detention centre, although with this current government anything could happen!! Hopefully this bird didn't go around sticking one "finger" in the air. I would think that the bird originated from the Jerra wetlands or reeds along the Molonglo River. Interesting that another (?)juvenile turned up in Queanbeyan as well recently.

Hopefully it wasn't in the "International" bit or the Border Force people will have shipped it to some remote detention centre!

Amazing, trust it was given a clean bill of health and let go somewhere more suitable.  ......
