G'day all

The injured bustard  - a large male - was found to have some major rib and femur
damage and was euthenased at Serendip.

The facts now seem to be as follows.  A flock of 6 were present in a paddock
north of Hamilton airport about two months ago.  They stayed for a couple of
weeks and then departed except for one bird.  This was found to be freshy
injured last Sunday and was caught and treated in Hamilton before being sent to
Serendip on Monday.  It is not known why the single bird remained when the
others left.
