Bohai 2017 Update 4

In Update 3 we mentioned we had ‘lost’ the Red Knot and then ‘found’ them.

The area we found them is between the Hangu Power Station and the Hangu Wind Farm it is a 29km direct flight form our main Luannan Coast study site. The habitat is exactly the same, extensive mudflats with myriad salt, shrimp and fish ponds just over the seawall (and a major road and through the wind turbines). And the birds use the area in the same way, as far as we can tell from our 8 days of visiting.
