News of a new transmission we have just received marks the most exciting movement by any of the birds we are currently tracking so far. A signal from Raushan from September 22nd now almost certainly locates her in Northern Pakistan a few kilometres north east of Thawoos, near the Yasin valley.
A new transmission today, Tuesday September 14th, places Raushan some 600km west of her breeding site and just north east of Lake Tengiz near Tyngylykty.
Following a strong signal on August 26th which placed her close to the nesting grounds still, Raushan was located about 150km north and close to the Russian border three days later.
A strong signal on August 26th from Raushan at 05:31 placed her just 150 km west of where she has been present all summer.
Our most recent signal from Raushan, logged at 00:17 on August 24th, confirmed she has departed her breeding grounds a few kilometers East of Lake Tengiz in Central Kazakhstan and has travelled about 450 km. in a north westerly direction.
