Botany Bay is a summer feeding ground for several species of migratory waders that fly thousands of kilometres from Siberia to arrive on the Sans Souci tidal flats.
Residents will have an opportunity to observe these birds on Sunday 18 February.
Several local bird experts from Bayside Council and Birdlife Australia will be on hand to point out the various species and tell the amazing migration story of these birds.
This is a perfect opportunity for local bird watching enthusiasts and anyone wanting to learn more about shorebirds.
It is most likely you will be able to see Bar-tailed Godwits and Pied Oyster Catchers.
Children are welcome, however the session is more suitable for children 10 years and above who must be accompanied by adults.
Please bring binoculars if you have them, water, sunscreen, and a hat. Wear comfortable clothing and shoes appropriate for walking on the sand.
Mayor Saravinovski said:
“Events like this help highlight just how valuable our coastal areas and open spaces are and the important role Council plays in preserving our natural resources,” Mayor Bill Saravinovski said.
