Migrating birds acting as "early warning system" for habitat loss

The changing habits of birds migrating through Asia is acting as an" early warning system" for the loss of coastal habitats, according to a network of organisations which protects migratory routes.

The East Asian-Australasian Flyway Partnership says that if birds need to change those routes it shows the eco-systems they depend on are degrading.
