Little Curlew migration update.

Inka Veltheim of Australia Wader Study Group sent us the following information about the three satellite tagged migrating Little Curlews heading north from Australia.

In the last updates only one bird had headed north, with the flag BD, it had reached China and now we have seen that it has moved inland to Hung-tse Lake near a town called Xuyi.

The last two remaining Little Curlews have taken to the wing and have taken a slightly more north-westerly route than the first (BD). They are both currently at different locations near Borneo.
