Russian ornithologist Nikolay Yakushev searching for Spoon-billed Sandpiper nests in coastal moraine hills during the species quiet incubation period. Nikolay has been studying Spoon-billed Sandpipers at  Meinypilgyno for many years. The species only breeds on a narrow coastal strip where the vegetation is appropriate (due to coastal weather) and feeding areas are close by (spits and coastal lagoons). Though their historical range covered a long coastline from Northern Chukotka  to Kamchatka, their distribution is very spotty because of these specific habitat needs. Chukotka, Russia. July.
