This is a fascinating and informative piece about migratory birds wintering at Westernport in the April edition of Landcare. Well worth a read.
Special Feature: Red’s Travel Diary
In previous issues we have noted the incredible journeys made by the often-tiny, airborne travellers that call the Peninsula home for summer. Here, thanks to super sleuth Stephen Brent, is the personal travel diary of a Red-necked Stint (Calidris (Ereunetes) ruficollis) documenting his epic journey to Siberia and back. Credits go to the Biosphere Facebook Page, where it first appeared, and Peninsula Birdlife March eNewsletter from which this version was ‘borrowed’ with the kind permission of Val Ford.
