LIVE EVENT: Shorebird stroll

Join us for a stroll on the sand of one of our southern Victorian beaches for talk all things shorebirds.The Glenelg Hopkins CMA will be joined by BirdLife Australia’s Coastal Bird Project officer, Dr Dan Lees, to find out what makes shorebirds so special.

From the Hooded Plover whose tiny chicks are easily camouflaged into to the sand, to the incredible Sanderlings who arrive every summer on our beaches from the norther Arctic, we’ll be strolling along talking about why its important to notice more than just the waves rolling in on our beaches.

Birds we might see

The way in which the livestreamed event it filmed means sometimes the birds are a big hard to see close up.

To help show what the birds we are looking at, talking about, and trying to find actually look like, we have added images below to assist with species identification.
