Sveta is a chairman of local “spoon-billed sandpiper’s friends club”. She implements community monitoring of spoon-billed sandpiper population and environment in Meinopilgyno. She has been in this role from the 2001, when the first ornithologist expedition arrived here. Without her support we could hardly have made this expedition possible. Sveta is really fond of this cute bird.
There's also a marvellous Wader Tales blog from @GrahamFAppleton about our marvellous spoonie satellite tracking project:
