It is migration time and our satellite-tagged Whimbrels have set off as well! Three of our Whimbrels departed Australia between 16-20 April and they are now in the northern hemisphere.
As three of our tagged Whimbrel make their way up through South-East Asia and into China, it appears one may not have been up to the journey and will be wintering here in Australia until the next migratory season.
