Spoon-billed Sandpipers move into new home in the UK.


The 13 Spoon-billed Sandpipers - Eurynorhynchus pygmeus - from far eastern Russia have been moved out of quarantine into purpose-built quarters at the Wildfowl & Wetlands Trust in Gloucestershire. These Spoon-billed Sandpipers will form the basis of a breeding population providing a safety net against extinction should the wild population continue its dramatic decline. It is intended that their descendants will be released into the wild.
