Tan Thanh beach in Go Cong district, Tien Giang province is a relative new discovery site. One of the most exciting is Spoon-billed Sandpiper wintering to thí place every year, there are about 5 individuals stay regularly here during later November until April.

Our aims to visit this site is of course for one of the rarest species SbS, but we also looking for another threatened Nordmann's Greenshank, and the new taxa "White-faced" Plover as well as many other waders such as Broad-billed and Terek Sandpiper, Red-necked Stint, Great Knot...

It is depending on the tide (see tide forecast at Cua Tieu), we will decide what time to leave Sai Gon to make sure that we will get there at the best birding condition (low tide). About 3 hours drive from Ho Chi Minh city we will get there and might have short time for coffee before searching our targets. Once we feel enough... have lunch with seafood and then drive back HCMC.
