Hi John,
I'd really appreciate any further news, theories or conclusions about the STS 
wrecks from our networks or associated authorities. It is sad. Some right it 
off as nature doing its thing, but even so, I'd like to know more about things 
like frequency, location, species, numbers, especially if Birds Australia are 
involved through its seems strange to me, but then again, it might 
be a regular, strange thing, bit like whales stranding...where we know it 
happens, but no one really knows why..

Thanks for the note.
