Magpie recovering

Sunshine Coast Daily/David Thomas

HAPPILY, this young magpie is recovering after a 20cm-long homemade arrow was removed by staff at the Byron Bay Vet Clinic on Monday.

A Binna Burra family first noticed the bird's plight three weeks before managing to catch it .

It has since been passed on to a WIRES volunteer, and staff at the vet clinic are hopeful it will make a full recovery and be returned to its magpie family.

Anyone with any information about the incident is asked to call Norman at the National Parks and Wildlife Service on 66209300.
