Meetings for 2018

4 October 2018

Short talk - Robert Bush: Pacifc Golden Plovers: tracking migraton movements from Moreton Bay. What route do Pacific Golden Plovers take to reach their breeding grounds? Do they stop on route or fly great distances? Do the Pacific Golden Plovers of Moreton Bay migrate to breed in the Russian Arctic, in Alaska or elsewhere? Until 2017 we didn't know the answers to these basic migration questions. Robert will describe how satellite tracking has been used to find out more information, what was discovered and how the findings inform conservation efforts across the Asian-Australasian Flyway.

Long talk - Maggie Overend: The Bladensburg Survey. BQ Member, Maggie Overend will talk about the recent Bladensburg Survey led by Andrew Ley. She will illustrate it with the photographic record of the trip.
