Distribution of the Nordmann's Greenshank
Figure 1. Visualized movement data from two Nordmann’s Greenshank.

Visualized movement data from two Nordmann’s Greenshank (Frankie and D79) tagged with 4.5-g platform transmitting terminals (PTT) produced by Microwave Technology Inc. Locations were filtered to class three stationary points which have an estimated accuracy in latitude and longitude ≤ 150 m. Both birds were tagged in March at the Inner Gulf of Thailand. Frankie’s tag failed or the bird died before reaching the Sea of Okhotsk coast in Russia during northward migration. D79 completed a full annual cycle with locations in possible breeding areas along Konstantin Bay, Russia; staging and stopover locations in Schaste Bay, Russia and Tiaozini, southeastern China; and overwintering in the Inner Gulf of Thailand.
