Where do all our Hoodies go ?

Banded Hoodie1

This fledgling  U1 was recently flagged south of Eden …. will he/she be back to that area?  Both of its parents are banded & flagged.

The Hooded Plover T1 on Tura Beach was flagged last season at Short Point and successfully fledged 2 chicks from 3 clutches [of 3 eggs each time ].These fledglings were not flagged this season.

Considering the hazards of people ,dogs,predators & waves it is probably a good average for these critically endangered birds.

Please contact us if you wish to be involved with the Shorebird Recovery program & volunteer for the winter surveys.
