Nial Moores, February 22nd
Our colleagues in SBS in China (THE NGO most responsible for raising the global profile of Rudong and the Jiangsu coast, leading the work there for Spoon-billed Sandpipers and Nordmann’s Greenshanks…and Dalmatian Pelicans, Black-faced Spoonbills, Relict Gulls and a host of other globally threatened species ) will run a bird tour this spring. The tour, led by some seriously knowedgable but very good-humored local experts, will take in some of East China’s very best spring birding – and also help SBS in China with funding for their conservation work.
There are, it seems, still some places left…really excellent news for those who can make the time to participate!
