We did it! Wings on King 2020 Autumn surveys

Despite the odds, twelve local King Islanders supported by two Artists in Residence who were stranded here due to COVID and happened to also be keen birders, completed all the Wings on King autumn surveys. We did them over a 5 week period from late April to end of May as we could. Working in pairs already sharing a bubble, we were able to achieve it without breaking any COVID rules, although had to wait until the Parks etc reopened to complete the task. One team were even able to add a KI Brown Thornbill to their list.

There were two really important results from this. We obtained and uploaded the data and we also showed that over the last four years since Wings on King began, we have grown to now have sufficient helpers to do it ourselves if we need to. Of course, we also love have birders from elsewhere coming to give us a hand and to enjoy our beautiful island.
