Point Moore and Greenough provide temporary homes to numerous migrating shorebirds that fly as far north as the Arctic Circle and as far east as New Zealand every year.

People interested in getting to know their local birds are invited to listen to a talk at Geraldton Regional Library tomorrow at 10am.

Members of Birdlife WA’s Geraldton group will give the presentation called Birds of Geraldton.

Volunteer Alice Bishop, who is one of the speakers, said the talk would be mostly about migrating shore birds and other birds people may see on the beaches.

“All bird watchers are worried about dropping numbers of shore birds,” she said.

“Birds on the beach are under increasing pressure from human activity.”
