How it got there - a SCANDAL reportGreetings All,

Apologies to Nevil for sending this on. I have no idea of the veracity of the 
following but I received this and it really is not fair, not to forward it to 
the list now. You or anyone else can make their own conclusions or 
investigations about this. If true and it seems more likely to me than that the 
bird arrived of its own power, this is not unprecedented. I was not being 
entirely sarcastic in my earlier message. If the bird arrived in northern 
Australia then natural occurrence makes sense. I recall the stuffed Night-Heron 
(years ago or is this a myth) that someone stuck in a tree somewhere in Britain 
to attract lots of British birding tourists, before eventually it was realised 
that the bird was dead and stuffed and nailed there (or something like that).
