    Abstract

    Coastal wetlands, which act as buffer zones between the marine and upstream land area, are increasingly under pressure due to an array of activities by multiple users. The wetlands are under the influence of both fresh and saline water. Many bird species including migratory seabirds and resident coastal birds use wetlands as resting place, for breeding or feeding purposes or to take cover from predators.
