With great reluctance we have decided to cancel this year’s festival.
The COVID 19 outbreak is leading to a huge amount of uncertainty and it is extremely difficult to confirm the participation of our special guest experts and volunteers who would need to travel to get here. Ultimately, health and safety concerns are at the top of our mind.
The birds will be migrating and there will be spectacular opportunities for birding in early May regardless of the cancellation. As the situation develops we will entertain the possibility of celebrating the shorebirds with small, informal, educational events. We are committed to creating as many opportunities for locals and visitors alike to learn while prioritizing health and safety. Updates will be available through our newsletter and social media channels.
