Lady Musgrave Island’s bird life is very active. This month is the peak-breeding season for Reef Herons. Pisonia Grand have stick seed falling from the trees. Female Turtles are laying eggs on the beach and turtle hatchlings can be seen making their way to the sea.
Migratory types of birds, such as the Noddy, Terns and Lesser Golden Plover depart the island. Some show breeding plumage as they return to their nesting grounds. Birds still nesting, include the Buffbanded Rail and the Black Noddy Tern. Female Turtles are at the end of the nesting season.
