Dinara celebrates New Year in India

Celebrity gossip on Talking Naturally? Sort of, though rather than a human famous for doing not very much, Dinara is a tagged Sociable Lapwing that is rapidly becoming the ‘star’ of BirdLife’s ‘The Amazing Journey’. A new satellite reading puts her close to the city of Ahmedabad in Gujarat, India, and over the last three months she has played a very important role in helping uncover a previously unconfirmed but long-suspected eastern migratory route. With staging sites becoming better understood, conservationists can plan strategies to help protect this Critically Endangered species once they leave the breeding grounds.
