Gooday Phillip and Carl,
Just a point of clarification. The roadkill and carrion I mention are not fresh 
kills but ones that have been well fed upon and almost leathery in appearance 
with the hide or whats left of it looking very dried out.
Last year I recorded 4 Wedge-tailed Eagles killed by locomotives on the 
Newlands/Collinsville/Abbot Point Project. These were birds that were feeding 
on fresh carrion possibly from the night before and left their departure too 
late. All of the Pring Drivers try their best to scare the birds off but some 
birds just don't get out of the way.
The 4 birds were the total for the Pring Depot of 45 Drivers.
