Event Details

Wild Things: Welcome back Shorebirds
When: Saturday 10th December 2016, 8:30 - 10:30am
Where: 35 Riverside Dr Sandringham, cnr Napoleon St.
Cost: Free

Did you know that Botany Bay is an annual summer feeding ground for several species of migratory waders like Godwits, Curlews, Sandpipers, Snipes and others? These intrepid birds fly thousands of kilometres from Siberia and Alaska and arrive exhausted and starving to feed on the tidal flats at Sans Souci and other areas around Botany Bay.

Welcome Back Botany Bay Shorebirds is timed for early summer at a known feeding site so we can observe the birds soon after their arrival from the Arctic. Several local bird experts from the NSW Wader Study Group will be on hand to point out the various species and tell the amazing migration story of these birds.

We'll be meeting in the car park on the beach front across from Scott Park Sans Souci. While we'll have a couple of scopes set up for viewing, you will have a much better experience if you can bring your own set of binoculars as well. You should also bring a hat, water, sunscreen and wear comfortable clothing and shoes appropriate for walking on the sand. Coffee, tea and a snack will be provided.

 

 

This Project has been assisted by the New South Wales Government through its Environmental Trust.
