The FoHp together with Birds Australia are holding two workshops/training days on the Mornington Peninsula.
The day begins at 10am with an indoor presentation about the life and behaviours of the Hooded Plover, followed by a beach visit.
We will try to visit a beach with chicks, but that’s not always possible. Each workshop lasts approximately 2 two hours.
This workshop is for all those interested in Hooded Plovers – beginners and experienced bird watchers. There is always something to learn from the ‘Beach Nesting Team’. It is also important to update skills, hear about new ideas and what has been happening on the Peninsula.
This year we have had an Honours student placing cameras at nest sites, her findings are very interesting. I encourage all members and friends to come.
