Fuelling up: tattlers on mainland Asia
Comparing to the Whimbrels, our Grey-tailed Tattlers are still far from the breeding ground.
Over the past week, LDN and LDU remained at their stop-over site in Southern China and North Vietnam. Both areas are estuary intertial mudflat.
Unfortunately, the transmitter on LBZ has ceased on 4-May-18, 3 days after it arrived in the Philippines. The other 2 Tattlers which stop-over in the Philippines departed a week ago and arrived in Southern China on 15-May-18. LBU and LBX both stayed in the Philippines for 7 days and made a move on 12-May-18. They arrived in Zhejiang and Fujian Province respectively, both using coastal mudflat.
