The start of the Sociable Lapwings’ autumn migration in 2010 appears to be slightly later than in the previous years we’ve been monitoring them. However, we still don’t know a great deal about the timing of their migrations so this is probably quite normal.
Most of the birds we’ve tagged in eastern Kazakhstan are now on the move. We haven’t received a strong signal from Svetlana since August 6th so we are currently unsure of her location. The map above shows the location she was in when we last heard from her on August 6th.
