Night talk: Mitch Harris opening comments, Thursday 13th September 2018.

Tonight: What were 1080 protesters thinking earlier today when they used dead birds as their ammunition on the steps of Parliament?

Five protected birds placed on Parliament's steps by anti-1080 protesters were killed with blunt force trauma, preliminary findings have determined.

Speaker Trevor Mallard has laid a complaint with Police and the Department of Conservation (DoC).

Mr Mallard said the "expert advice was the birds were almost certainly bludgeoned to death."

Also tonight: What does Fonterra need to do to turn their fortunes around?

There's been disappointment from many Fonterra suppliers and shareholders at the big loss posted by the dairy giant.

Fonterra announced an annual loss of $196 million for the 2018 financial year.
