Safe journeys, kuaka

A few Kuaka visit our beach every year, but now it’s time for them to leave:

With the changing of the season, the first godwits have started leaving … for their long flight to Alaska.

… their 17,000km-long migration to the breeding grounds in the Arctic tundra is the longest known non-stop journey for any bird.

In fact, I think I haven’t seen any on the beach for a while now.
