Spoon-billed Sandpiper

A bird I’ve never seen but one that I hope we can manage to save so that I might well get a chance. Birdlife International rate this superb species as critically endangered.

What a stunner!

  1. Poor little fecker….there was no female about to hear it….[reminds me of ‘last of the eskimo curlews’]…..

    I do sincerely hope that the efforts to save this species from extinction are successful……but they’re REALLY up against it…all things considered…[trapping and the fuckin up of vital migration routes in the far East…tis a right bummer]….

    ps…get yerself over to Thailand this winter if poss….ASAP like….!
