Shoalhaven Heads, Oct 30th and 2 other dates
The Eastern Curlew is a migratory shorebird that calls our coastal estuaries, mudflats and sandspits home over spring and summer before returning to North Eastern China and Russia to breed in Autumn each year. The Shoalhaven River plays host to a flock each year which has been recorded at over 100 indivduals, making it a very important waterway to their recovery. Our teams of volunteers will be looking to ensure their summer home is in good condition by removing weeds and marine debris from their high tide roosting points, as well as counting the number of Curlews present at the site.
