A team from the Pūkorokoro Miranda Naturalists’ Trust have been travelling to China and North Korea for several years to survey the shorebirds in the Yellow Sea. In 2018 they were followed by Mark Crysell and a TVNZ crew who brought us a closer look at their efforts to survey the birds in an area that very few people have an opportunity to see. Here’s the coverage of the trip:
