The Article in the OBC Magazine about my trip to Bangladesh

I made a trip in February 2015 to Bangladesh, to survey the rare Spoon-billed Sandpiper that winter on Sonadia Island, give a talk in Dhaka and raise the profile of the birds through the Bangladesh media.  The trip was important to me as I am half Bangladeshi and also because I am the Ambassador for World Shorebird Day, a wader charity.

My trip was supported by the Bangladesh Bird Club, many of whom attended my talk in Dhaka.

The Oriental Bird Club (OBC) then published an article about my trip in their June 2015 Magazine, Birding Asia.  I felt extremely proud to have an article published in the OBC Magazine, which is extremely highly regarded.
