The shorebird image submissions for the handbook is progressing well but still many of the previously registered bird photographers haven’t shown any activity despite multiple reminders. We are pleased by the growing number of bird photographers though. Categorisation for making the final decision is under way and we are very pleased by the large number of high quality images uploaded so far. This will ensure us to publish a high quality reference about shorebirds of the world.
There have been some misunderstanding about the species included in the handbook so the list of shorebird link was replaced.
We also accept high quality shorebird habitat photos showing shorebirds in their wider environment or just the habitat they are using.
Now we set the first round image submission deadline which is 31 October 2016. From 1 November 2016 we will focus on special ‘local’ photography expedition subprojects with committed bird photographers to fill the gap.
