PTT 36 likes to be photographed Update

The idea with satellite transmitters (also called PTTs) is that once attached to your study subject, you don’t need to see the bird again as the PTT is tracking it on your behalf. When we put PTTs on birds in Roebuck Bay, however, we expect to resight them as the bay is an excellent site for resighting, with large flocks easily observable from low cliffs and sand dunes. And indeed we do resight tagged birds often, and are able to assess the status of the birds and their PTTs. PTT 36 likes to be photographed Update »

Bohai 2017 Update 1

The Global Flyway Network are back at the Luannan Coast, Bohai Bay, China. Since 2010 we have been here covering most of the northward migration period. That is about 56 days of field work every year for the last seven years and this 2017 season makes it our eighth consecutive year.

We hope you enjoy the updates this season. Our work is rather repetitive, scan, data entry, scan, data entry, scan, count, data entry…but we get to eat some great food, do some cool birding and have a laugh, so we hope we can convey some of that to you.

Benthos Survey 2016

Apparently the shorebirds only come to Roebuck Bay as the mud flats are choc-a-bloc full of invertebrates.
