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.

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!

梁先生:

   多謝你八月九日的電郵及提供資料。我們已在八月十日派員到場調查,期間並沒有發現霧網。本署人員随即在上址當眼處貼上警告,提醒市民狩獵野生動物乃非法行為。

再次感謝閣下提供的資料。
