Sociable lapwings in Kazakhstan, video


This video says about itself:

Check out the new RSPB (BirdLife in the UK) video about tracking Critically Endangered Sociable Lapwing Vanellus gregarius in Kazakhstan.

Watch this extraordinary video of Dr. Rob Sheldon (RSPB) and Maxim Koshkin (ACBK) fitting one of the new satellite tracking devices to Alia on the breeding grounds, in Central Kazakhstan in June 2010.

Dr Paul Donald (RSPB) narrates – explaining how this high-tech conservation initiative will provide vital new information that will help develop conservation strategies to protect the birds and ultimately lead to a long term future for the species.

After more than a month without word, Dinara (a Sociable Lapwing) sprung a double surprise today when we received not only a new transmission with details of her current location but also confirmation that she is in southern Uzbekistan: here.

Important Bird Areas incorporated into Kazakh legislation: here.
