Nikoo first to spring into action

Our “beautiful” Sociable Lapwing Nikoo is the first to make a move northwards.  She left her wintering grounds in Sudan on the 17th of February 2016, and three days later was in Saudi Arabia, with our last satellite signal on the 22nd from the eastern edge of Syria.  As she progresses, we will be able to see how her autumn and spring migration routes differ.

With one tagged bird on the move, we expect others to start their journeys very soon.
