UK project hopes to save the endangered spoon-billed sandpiper

Help

Some of the world's most endangered birds have been given a new home in the UK after a journey from Russia's Far East.

There are thought to be fewer than 200 spoon-billed sandpipers left in the world.

Now 13 have been brought to the Slimbridge Wetlands Centre in Gloucestershire.
