Great migration from Broome to Siberia

Birds the size of a baked bean tin and an apple can fly non stop from Broome to Siberia or China and back again.

Every afternoon as the sun starts to slide low over the Broome Peninsula, a group of people with binoculars and notebooks can be found on the shores of Roebuck Bay keenly watching the sky.

They're waiting for huge flocks of wader birds to begin their migration to the Northern Hemisphere, which is a non stop journey.
