Erzhan – 1st update

posted in: Follow the flock, Latest posts | 0

Erzhan – our most seasoned traveller – has been summering in Central Kazakhstan again in 2010 but once again, in a different breeding location to the previous year.

Data from Erzhan’s transmitter has led to the surprising discovery that Sociable Lapwings don’t necessarily return to the same breeding colony.

Remarkably – the transmitter the study team fitted to Erzhan in Summer 2007 is still functioning well and we soon expect him to be heading back to the Sudan for another winter season.

On August 6th, 2010 Erzhan was still present where he has been summering near ACBK’s study area about 100km East of Lake Tengiz.
