Syria, Saudi Arabia and Sudan

The amazing journey continues as Shirin reaches Africa.

Spring is in the air

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.

Boris arrives in Sudan

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.

Winter update and request for recent sightings

Last September, four Sociable Lapwings left Kazakhstan to begin their migrations fitted with working satellite transmitters but shortly afterwards we unfortunately stopped receiving any transmissions. We are however, pleased to now be able to report on a number of sightings we have recently received that confirm the presence of Sociable Lapwings in most of their regular wintering areas.
