It’s that time of the year again when migratory shorebirds are increasing in numbers at Thompson Beach – and it’s always a brilliant sight to see.
Our resident shorebirds are being joined by feathered friends that have traveled from as far away as the Arctic. Some species make a round trip of around 26,000 kilometres each year!
If you’d like to learn more about migratory shorebirds, BirdLife Australia are running a workshop this coming Saturday (November 10) at Thompson Beach.
The meeting place is The Shed on Ruskin Road and from there you’ll be heading to the beach to view the birds. There will also be a presentation, a free morning tea and a bird identification guide provided.
The workshop runs from 8.30am to 11.00am.

The Birdlife Australia workshop is supported by the Department of Environment and Water and National Parks South Australia. Established in 1901, BirdLife Australia is dedicated to achieving outstanding conservation results for our native birds and their habitats.
