Shorebirds 2020 annual winter counts - get your surveys in!

Shorebirds 2020 annual winter counts - get your surveys in!

The Shorebirds 2020 winter counts are approaching. The window for the winter counts is mid-May to mid-August, with the ideal date being July 1. 

Data collected as part of the S2020 winter counts are very important and we encourage you to survey your local shorebird areas during the survey window. The winter surveys help us get an idea of the breeding success for each species, as well as ensuring that we capture Double-banded Plovers in the monitoring program, who spend the winter in Australia and breed in New Zealand during the summer.

We also encourage you to enter your counts directly into Birdata. If you have any questions about the winter count or Birdata, contact the shorebirds team at shorebirds@birdlife.org.au
