Port Fairy’s visiting water bird, which travels across the world in three days, will be the topic of discussion when researcher Birgita Hansen visits Port Fairy on Sunday.
Dr Hansen, of the Latham’s Snipe Project, will speak about the amazing life of the migratory water bird, and the project’s efforts which focus on the Port Fairy area, breeding areas in Hokkaido, Japan and the migration patterns along the East Asian-Australasian Flyway.
She will also share details from a recent trip to Japan where the team learnt about snipe research and monitoring in Hokkaido, and participated in snipe surveys around Tomakomai.
The South Beach Wetlands and Landcare Group is hosting the event, to be held at the Port Fairy Community Centre at 1.30pm. RSVP is required for catering. To register email firstname.lastname@example.org or call/ text 0418 570 129 with your name and number.
