Critically Endangered waders.

Posted Tuesday 21st July 2015 at 22:20 by Rick and Elis
The list of Critically Endangered waders makes grim reading; Black Stilt, Jerdon's Courser, Sociable Lapwing, Javan Lapwing, St Helena's Plover, Eskimo Curlew, Slender-billed Curlew and Spoon-billed Sandpiper.

Of these Jerdon's Courser, Javan Lapwing, Eskimo Curlew and Slender-billed Curlew are almost certainly already extinct.

Upon arrival to the river under the bridge there were a lot of fiches. Under a heat of 40C carps approached to the surface of the river. Two turtles were taking a sunbathing. Some orioles and some fugitive long-tailed tit. A shrike was on a branch looking to the field beside the river.

Black-crowned night herons flew up from a branches of the river. And a few hundred meters up the river I saw one of them.I had been four days in the last two month trying...
