The Wood Sandpiper (Tringa glareola) is one of the most abundant shorebird species of inland Eurasia during migration. It breeds in the sub-Arctic Eurasia but spends the winter in southern Asia (mainly in India and South East Asia) as well as in Africa. Inland wetlands, fishponds, sewage-farms, wet grasslands are all important stopover habitats for migrating Wood Sandpipers. Rice fields in south-east Asia and Indonesia play important role during the non-breeding season.
It is vital to expand our survey network across the region and get more inland sites involved in ESS. Please consider participating in our survey starting next year. Register your location using this form: https://www.worldshorebirdsday.org/eurasian-shorebird-survey
