Satellite tagged grey-tailed tattler 2018

During this year AWSG’s North-west Australia Waders and Terns Expedition, the team deployed five 2g satellite transmitters on Grey-tailed Tattler at Eighty Miles Beach on 16-Feb-18. Unlike the 5g satellite transmitters on Whimbrel, these 2g tags transmit signals whenever the solar battery is sufficiently charged. Over the past 2 months, these five tattlers have utilised areas up to 23km south to 48km north to the location where they were first captured (15km south to the Anna Plains entrance to the beach).

These birds are expected to start migrating north by the end of this month and their news will also be
updated here.
