Rescuers from Coalition Against Duck Shooting found a starving Sharp-tailed 
Sandpiper on Jack Smith Swamp, near Yarram, Victoria, on the weekend. Duck 
hunting is permitted here, which may be why it hadn't fed sufficiently.
The sharpie was weak and flapping around in the water. It was caught and taken 
to Melbourne Zoo, where it was diagnosed as emaciated. 

It's reportedly doing well.
