Seasonally its hot and humid but this hasn't stopped migrants returning

Permalink 21:58:23, Categories: Observation by Howard  

The summer is far too long here for us humans the weather, well starting the end of May high temperatures kick in, then as July moves through August it just gets hotter and hotter and the humidity rises and often stays around 100% for days on end. Early September if we are lucky it will break and the place gets habitable again but its a long wait until then.

However for many species the summer is the time for breeding, a time when it requires a miracle for it to rain, thus for many Southern Terns species all ground breeders they choose to enter the Gulf during this period so as to escape the Indian Monsoon and breed alongside our hardy resident species.
