"Can the Bully tell me where the container vessels dock in the Broadwater? Bulk carriers? Roll on roll off? Gas tankers? No? No blue water vessels carrying the country's essential exports need sail in the Broadwater? So the dredging is pointless? Just for recreational boaties? Leave the birds alone."

Hello David and others,

Firstly the gold Coast Bulletin is in my opinion, possibly the least accurate and the biggest joke as a newspaper I've encountered> If it published an accurate story i would be surprised. there fore no surprise or shock re its inaccurate reporting.

What does disappoint me is the replies from members of this list who waste words on trivialities while ignoring the real problem which is the further destruction of wader habitat in Moreton Bay. The Southport Broadwater is the southern extremity or Moreton Bay.

Surely we should all be jumping up and down concerning this destruction of habitat.

It appears that wader numbers are steadily decreasing. I don't have on hand current figures from Qld Wader sSudy Group which does monthly counts but from memory I think numbers of every species have declined over the last decade.
