The GFN team is in Bohai Bay, China, to study Red Knots and Great Knots on northward migration. Chris Hassell, Ady Boyle and Bob Loos post regular updates on the Australian Global Flyway Network website. Here is the second of this season. The team reports:
“The weather this season has been amazing, as it was last year. This fine weather has allowed us some great scanning from the sea wall where we do most of our resighting work, either on incoming or outgoing tides, while the birds are close enough to read colourband combinations, engraved leg flags (ELF) and score breeding plumage and abdominal profiles. Mornings are by far the best for observations as the sun is behind us.”
