After reading the accounts of people in my home State looking for Bush Stone 
Curlews in the Wimmera, I thought I should relate what happened to me today.

My vehicle was low on fuel so I programmed my GPS to take me to the nearest 
servo; Caltex on Warburton St, Townsville.  When I got there, the servo  was 
long gone and it was just a cyclone fenced vacant lot . . . with 16 Bush Stone 
Curlews standing or lying about the site.  There were another 5 or 6 in a 
fenced sports ground next to the vacant block.

I think that I have only seen 2 or 3 Bush Stone Curlews before (not in 
captivity) so it was an amazing sight for me, particularly as they are in a 
built up area.
