Abstract

The loss of feeding areas in the intertidal coastal wetlands may pose a threat to many wintering waders such as plovers and sandpipers. Wetlands are the major feeding habitats for water and shorebirds. The birds were estimated by total count method during 06.00 am to 06.00 pm weekly. Totally ten species of plover and sandpiper were observed from January-2011 to December-2012
