G'day All,

Just received the following question, if anyone has any information that
you can pass on please contact Jean Stevenson on
  (I've already informed  her that Masked
Lapwings don't have poison in their spurs)

Tom and Marie, I'm hoping you can help me. I live in a caravan and there
is often visitors to the park with children who use the play area but we
have plovers nesting there for years and of cause some children stir
them up with the result that some have been hurt by the spurs. Can you
tell me if the spurs carry any poison? Or can you recomment a internet
site that will tell me more about these birds. Thanking you, Jean
