An adult female Black-necked Stork and an Australian Painted Snipe have been
found dead along the southern shore of Ewen Maddock Dam on the Sunshine
Coast. It is likely that both birds were shot.  The two species are rare in
south-east Queensland. Unfortunately, in my experience, the Queensland
Department of Environment and Heritage Protection has in the past ignored
representations made to it about the welfare of rare birds. I found the dead
stork today in the area that it had been frequenting for several weeks.


On a more positive note, today I saw the Black-tailed Native-hen that I
found at the dam 6 weeks ago, along with an Australian Little Bittern and
two Spotless Crakes.
