Sociable Plovers

Killing time before my late evening survey in Lancashire today I've just come across this incredible website: The Amazing Journey: Where you can follow the migration of the Sociable Lapwing. You can experience an extraordinary migration in real-time of 9 Critically Endangered birds from their breeding grounds in Kazakhstan to their wintering areas in tropical Africa.

This is a Birdlife International Preventing Extinctions Project sponsored by the RSPB and Swarovski Optik.
The 9 birds are called Abaj, Alia, Dinara, Erzhan, Jibek, Lena, Raushan, Svetlana and Tatyana.
I can't wait to see where they will end up!
