The James Bay shorebird project has been underway since 12 July. This season, we have two field camps operational: Longridge Point and Little Piskwamish Point. Early reports suggested that shorebird counts are lower than the previous two seasons during this period. However, numbers have picked up in the current period (30 July to 13 August). For example, 4,000 Red Knot were just recorded at Piskwamish on 6 August.
We’ve updated our website with the latest summary from our field crew for the period 12-29 July 2019. Stay tuned to our website and Facebook page for future updates, posted roughly every two weeks.
