Unfortunate Darter Caught in discarded Fishing Line 15/07/12
While Birdwatching at Cressbrook Dam (South East Queensland) today, we were saddened to witness this unfortunate Darter that was hanging by fishing line around its neck, from a tree overlooking the water. Another Darter was perched in the tree above the dead one. It was a very sad sight and I am posting the pictures to highlight the damage that discarded fishing line can cause.
