Graeme has worked at the RSPB for 15 years, and has input to spoon-billed sandpiper work since 2009. He is happiest outside in the field but his job, using remote sensing and GIS data, sees him tied to a computer in an office most of the time. He has undertaken spoon-billed sandpiper surveys on the Gulf of Mottoma in two winters; something which he lists among the highlights of his 15 years at RSPB. His particular interest is identification and monitoring of spoon-billed sandpiper habitats from remote sensing. When not at work he can be found outside, birding or riding one of his fleet of bikes.
@looksouth Not quite the same but does this count? #SaveSpoonie
Only around 200 breeding pairs remain in the wild. Don’t let The Spoon-billed Sandpiper fall off the perch into #extinction. #SaveSpoonie

Great work by @SBS_in_China working on critical sites for waterbirds including #SaveSpoonie @EAAFP
More and more local fishermen communities have joined us for mudflat conservation and a better habitat for waders 🐦 4
