Five sites in Bangladesh – Nijhum Dweep National Park, Sonadia, Hakaluki Haor, Tanguar Haor and Hail Haor have been added to the Flyway Site Network as internationally important habitats for migratory waterbirds. Nijhum Dweep National Park and Sonadia are important coastal habitats which support diverse range of shorebirds including the critically endangered Spoon-billed Sandpiper (Eurynorhynchus pygmeus). The other two sites, Hail Haor, Hakaluki Haor and Tanguar Haor, are important freshwater habitats mainly for Anatidae species such as Gadwall (Anas strepera), Northern Pintail (Anas acuta), Lesser Whistling Duck (Dendrocygna javanica), and threatened Baer’s Pochard (Aythya baeri). Designation of these fives sites is a significant step forward to recognising the sites of international importance in Bangladesh since that country joined the Partnership in August 2010. The Partnership looks forward to continued participation of Bangladesh in extending the Flyway Site Network.
