Lena

Lena is an adult female Sociable Lapwing tagged in May 2010 at Zharma in the East of Kazakhstan. Her name means ‘Sunny and bright’ in Kazakh.

In order to help our scientists spot her in a large flock during migration she was colour ringed. Her colour ring combination is blue over yellow on her left leg and yellow over blue on her right leg.

Lena’s satellite tag number is 052261.

Lena’s amazing journey was indicated by a tourquoise pin on the main Follow the Flock map but she is no longer transmitting.
