Spoon-billed Sandpiper – some good news
By Charlie • March 15, 2010
Jez Bird, Alex Lee & Sayam Chowdhury are surveying in Bangladesh, Sayam has mailed the OB group to say, “I am extremely delighted to let you know that we found a minimum of 25 Spoon-billed Sandpipers last week at Sonadia Island (in addition to other rare wader species including 24 Nordmann’s Greenshanks and over 450 Great Knots). We are planning to visit several more potential SBS sites along the Bengal coast in the coming days of this month long SBS search.”
The bad news is that Sonadia is threatened by a development.
There is more on the Spoon-billed Sandpiper.
