The Global Flyway Network Great Knots wearing satellite transmitters that were issued in NW Australia, have started their southward migration back to Australia!
Very excitingly, one Great Knot, nick-named “Green” has been photographed by team member Dmitry Dorofeev amongst tens of thousands of shorebirds in Kamchatka and is now heading south through Shchastya Bay.
Follow the link through to Team Piersma’s article: News from Kamchatka, June-July 2017: learn about “Green”.
Embedded within the article is a fantastic short film by Dmitry about a very interesting re-sighting of one of his birds in the Arabian Gulf, check it out!
