Spoon-billed Sandpipers at Mai Po Nature Reserve, Hong Kong



Two individual Spoon-billed Sandpipers from the rising tide at Mai Po on 18th April.  

One winter-plumaged bird…









and one going into breeding plumage....



Spoon-billed Sandpiper  - Eurynorhynchus pygmeus


Just one (presumably the same non-breeding bird) on the outgoing tide...



This posting is short and sweet, a bit like a Spoon-billed Sandpiper.

  1. So nice to see 2 SBS together in the same area! Love the one moulting into breeding plumage.

    1. Sigh! Mai Po still hits the spot doesn't it!

  2. 2 SBS increases our aspirations to save them.
