Satellite tags not only help us follow birds on migration, but also enable us to track their use of habitats during their winter season.
After their long and amazing journeys, our tagged Sociable Lapwings settle down for the winter months.
Sociable Lapwing movements highlight the need for cross-boundary conservation co-operation.
The amazing journey continues as Shirin reaches Africa.
Five birds tracked in five different countries, as the western flock moves further south.
In an unexpected turn of events, Irina reappears!
This summer Boris and Irina returned safely to the breeding grounds, having wintered in Sudan and Saudi Arabia respectively, although after their long journeys neither bird ended up where we expected.
Following the discovery that Irina had reached North West Saudi Arabia in late October, further satellite transmissions mid-November indicated she was still present near Tabuk.
Irina is now in North West Saudi Arabia near Tabuk and appears to be in an area of irrigated, agricultural pivot fields.
