Spring migration as at 14th March 2016

While Maysa, Shirin and Sanjar have yet to make a move on their spring migration, in the east Tesfaye has reached Tallymarjan and is currenly on the Turkmenistan side of the border.  Nikoo remains just south of the Turkey/Syria border, while Vyan is in Saudi Arabia.  However, we have not heard from him since the 29th of February 2016.  Two other birds are no longer transmitting: Canan (last signal 16th November 2015), and Ajaz (last signal 2nd February 2016).  So we may now only have five of our original nine birds with functioning satellite tags.
