Hi All,

I've been contacted by a few people in the past 24 hrs unhappy about what's happening to shorebirds with these high tides, which we will have for the rest of the week. Nest failures, aerial roosting, not good for birds.

However, there is a positive side to this. The very high tides serve the birds very well in keeping the roosts free of terrestrial, salt-intolerant vegetation, so that there can be shorebird roosts.

Now off to Noosa to spend the day with the shorebirds and terns.
