BD arrives in China - Inka Veltheim and Clive Minton

Following the migration of the Little Curlews from northern Western Australia we hear that one of them has now reached China. This from Inka and Clive:

The Little Curlew on migration (131945 - BD) has just arrived in China.

Its location is near the town of Putian and the latest fixes are from a coastal area with aquaculture ponds or salt pans.

The bird has travelled approximatelu 1900 km from its last stopover in Plaridel, Philippines. We are expecting it to stay and refuel at the Chinese location for about 2 weeks before continuing its journey to the breeding grounds.
