Ruddy Turnstone numbers increase

October 11, 2017

FANTASTIC NEWS: There are more Ruddy Turnstone visiting King Island than there have been since 2010.

The Victorian branch of the Australian Wader Study Group, on their March 2017 visit to King Island, found a huge increase in numbers of these wonderful international migrants, compared to previous years.  As reported in the Tattler Newsletter, July 2017 No 44, the count had gone from 597 in 2016 - the least since 2010 - to 843.  31% of this count were juvenile (first-year) birds, showing that the Turnstones had had a highly successful breeding summer in their northern hemisphere breeding sites.  Lets hope they keep it up next year.  The AWSG will be back in December - see https://www.birdsofkingisland.com/upcoming-events
