For updates on the whereabouts of our birds please see the latest blogs and the website of GFN Australia.

On the ground we work in (1) the non-breeding areas in Roebuck Bay and along Eight Mile Beach in NW Australia and in New Zealand, and (2) the staging areas in Bohai Bay, China.

An important task we have set ourselves is tracking Bar-tailed Godwits, Great Knots and Red Knots to identify the crucial intertidal flats these birds use to fuel their long-haul migrations.
