Invasion of Shorebirds into inland wetlands of Periyakulam lake,
Tiruchirappalli, Southern India

The loss of feeding areas in the intertidal coastal wetlands may pose a threat to many wintering waders such as plovers and
sandpipers. Wetlands are the major feeding habitats for water and shorebirds. The birds were estimated by total count
method during 06.00 am to 06.00 pm weekly. Totally ten species of plover and sandpiper were observed from January-2011
to December-2012

Keywords: birds, conservation, lakes, plovers, sandpipers, wetlands.
