It has been a bit over a month since the last Little Curlew update and we have some news to report.
From here, it moved to Rudong, where it was on the 3rd of July. It then moved to an inland lake near Yishui around the 8th of July, about 110 km north west of the coastal town of Rizhao. Four days later it was back on the coast, having moved 120km from its previous location. It moved a further 150 km south to an area near Liangungang (where 131947 also stopped over in early June).
