Boris & Irina reunite in Azerbaijan

After spending the winter far apart in Eastern Sudan and Western Saudi Arabia respectively, Boris and Irina have apparently reunited in Azerbaijan during their long journeys home to Kazakhstan.

Spring is in the air

With Spring in the air – Boris, Irina and Ainur, the three Sociable Lapwings we fitted with satellite tags in Kazakhstan last summer, have all left their wintering areas and are now on the way back to their breeding grounds.

Boris arrives in Sudan

After staging for several weeks close to the Turkish border in northern Syria, Boris embarked on the next leg of a particularly interesting and lengthy journey south on November 13th.

Irina arrives in eastern Turkey

All three of our satellite-tagged Sociable Lapwings are still transmitting strong signals. Of note is the particularly fast migration south by Irina who is now in Eastern Turkey.

Satellite-tagged Sociable Lapwings are on the move again

With a lack of trackable Sociable Lapwings to report on over the last year, we are delighted to now reactivate the Amazing Journey website to bring you news about the migrations of three new birds that scientists from RSPB and ACBK fitted with satellite tags earlier this year.
