Our month-long celebration of World Migratory Bird Day (8 May) saw many beloved waterbird facts, anecdotes and stories come to the fore, like this one of the Curlew Sandpiper: their migration takes them all the way from the High Arctic to tropical areas, often even crossing the Equator all the way to South Africa and Australia! They undertake this long journey by stopping in intertidal wetlands - where the conditions are favourable for them to rest and feed.
