Victory for bird lovers. Shooters are now banned from killing waterbirds in major Victorian wetlands. At least 118 of these endangered Freckled Ducks and 38 Blue-billed Ducks were slaughtered near Kerang last weekend. Volunteers from Coalition Against Duck Shooting retrieved the bodies of 1,200 birds on the 'opening duck shooting weekend'. Photo by Dean Ingwersen via @birdlifeoz

Some weeks it's easy to feel trapped and helpless. I believe that, even when things aren't great, there is always something you can do to make it a bit better or find away round it. It might be building an elaborate set of rope ladders, deciding to make a herculean effort to break through the seemingly indestructable or just being less harsh on yourself. As long as you have tried your best, you can't really be disappointed in yourself. 🙄
