After their long and amazing journeys, our tagged Sociable Lapwings settle down for the winter months.
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!
With Spring in the air – Boris, Irina and Ainur, the three Sociable Lapwings we fitted with satellite tags in Kazakhstan last summer, have all left their wintering areas and are now on the way back to their breeding grounds.
Hot on the heels of the news that Boris had arrived in Sudan, we discovered that Ainur has continued her, very different, journey south too and that she is now in southern Pakistan.
After staging for several weeks close to the Turkish border in northern Syria, Boris embarked on the next leg of a particularly interesting and lengthy journey south on November 13th.
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.
With a lack of trackable Sociable Lapwings to report on over the last year, we are delighted to now reactivate the Amazing Journey website to bring you news about the migrations of three new birds that scientists from RSPB and ACBK fitted with satellite tags earlier this year.
