Hi there birders,

South Australia's longest serving member of parliament, Graham Gunn, has called for a cull of corellas in the mid-north of the state. He is advocating the use of strychnine. I heard him being interviewed on radio this morning and he admitted that the use of strychnine was illegal in S.A. but thought that NPWS Rangers could be employed to deal with the problem.

In parliament he even gave a suitable recipe using strychnine which would have them "falling out of the sky like spitfires."

Some might suggest he is focusing on the wrong "pest" species that needs culling.
