Bugger just as I pressed submit There were two calling out the back.
Go to the museum and look up the curlew story in the aboriginal art section.

Hi Steve,

Wasn't expecting a Territorian to be following ... apparently Curlew babies are not seen very often.

Bet you have them squawking outside your bedroom window at night to.

Looked like two pieces of carpet on the ground.
Our two Blue dog's didn't pick up their scent and Kites not interested either.



Regards,
Dave
