It’s that time again when the migratory shorebirds, otherwise known as waders, begin their gruelling migratory journey north to the Arctic. The shorebirds will fly along the East-Asian Australasian Flyway to the Northern hemisphere stopping in Singapore, the Philippines, Hong Kong, China, South-Korea, Japan, Russia and Alaska where they spend the next 6 or so months breeding. This year has been a great shorebird season for the Peel-Yalgorup Wetland System. During this year’s annual shorebird survey, Shorebird2020, volunteers counted over 57,000 shorebirds across the Ramsar Site. This is the highest number recorded since 2013. Good luck Shorebirds, safe travels and see you back in the Peel-Yalgorup Wetland in October.
