I am sad to know that this Wood Sandpiper is not the sole victim, after reading this forum.
This bird is saved by me, but it cannot fly afterward...

Hi Vicky,

I have reported to Mr.Shek of AFCD last night by email, as I don't know it's illegal trap at first. The farm is near Yin Kong.
But I don't know how to describe the exact location to help them.
Is there any map which is easy to locate the farm?

Thank you~~

I have located the site on google map. I think the victim in previous post is found at here too. ... 82&ll=22.505887,114.112614&spn=0.002508,0.003632&t=h&z=18&brcurrent=3,0x3403f666aefb58d3:0xe40347e8c590cf42,1,0x3403f5db5f172d93:0xe20b08e8053ec4d8

Thank you Schindler!
I'm sorry the google map is not tagged. But we have a brief idea on the location of the field.
AFCD is going to the site today. Hope they will clear the net.
Thank you so much!
