Irina was an adult female Sociable Lapwing tagged on June 4th, 2013 at Izendi, near Korgalzhyn in Central Kazakhstan. Her name means ‘peace’.
In order to help our scientists spot her in a large flock during migration she was colour ringed. Her colour ring combination was green over blue on her left leg and orange over white on her right leg.
Irina’s satellite tag number was 123088. She stopped transmitting on the 13th of January 2015 in Saudi Arabia.
