Bird Watching

West Inlet is the home of approx. 200 different species of birds, a bird watchers paradise.

The Robbins Passage Wetlands (accessible by visiting Montagu) are claimed to support higher numbers of shorebirds than all other shorebird sites in Tasmania combined.

Resident species that occur in high numbers include the sooty and pied oystercatchers and the hooded plover.
