Birds on Beaches

Feeding, nesting, preening, relaxing or just hanging out, this project brings together the great photos of our birds around the country on our salt water beaches and harbours, not fresh water lakes, rivers, streams and creeks unless it is the brackish part that meets the salt water.

Currently there are 5 observations of birds nesting , so keep an eye out for more of these.
