Read these notes and then follow the prompts.
Shorebirds are birds that depend upon the shore for food, and to rest. For some birds the shore is also the place where they nest and raise their chicks.
The Shoreline is between the sea and the land. It is the beaches, the rocks, the mangroves and river mouths along our coast. It is also the land close to the sea like sand dunes, mudflats, saltpans and wetlands, scrub and grassy fields close by.
