Just to clarify a couple points regarding the Freckled Duck shootings at the 
Box Flat swamp. In the speech from Sue Pennicuik she refers to approximately 
200 Freckled Duck being shot at Box Flat. Is that number based on the 
investigation by the DSE or the DPI? If it is correct that would be about 1% of 
the total population which is outrageous assault on an endangered species. 
Particularly when this was just one day at one location and the duck hunting 
season still has  time to go. 

Also Sue refers to Box Flat swamp being a Nature Conservation Reserve, is that 
correct? Where is the Box Flat swamp in relation to Boort?
