Spoon-billed Sandpiper is back
With the efforts of many NGOs and conservationists, the spoon-billed Sandpiper appears to have restored its reproductive rhythm, and is showing signs of growth again.
According to our observations for many years, the number of them returning to coastal and estuarine flats for food has increased each year. In the bird season in 2020, we recorded 6-8 individuals foraging in Go Cong beach, Tien Giang province.
This is a suitable foraging habitat for this bird, where there are long sandy beaches mixed with fine mud and located in the tidal range twice a day, these sandbanks are rich in aquatic species that feed Spoon -Billed Sandpiper.
