Abaj is an adult male Sociable Lapwing tagged in May 2010 at Zhanteke in Central Kazakhstan. His name in Kazakh means ‘Eternity’.

In order to help our scientists spot him in a large flock during migration he was colour ringed. His colour ring combination is blue over yellow on his left leg and white over yellow on his right leg.

Abaj’s satellite tag number is 055033.

Abaj’s amazing journey was indicated by a red pin on the main Follow the Flock map but he is no longer transmitting.
