AWSG North-west Australia Satellite Tracking Project Update (Part 2 & 3)

This is the 2nd and 3rd update on the AWSG satellite tracking project. The highlight is again the performance of the Oriental Pratincoles. All four have now left Australia on northward migration. The leading bird has now been in Cambodia for over a week and settled by the largest freshwater lake in Southeast Asia, where it could well stay to breed. The other three are still on migration through Southeast Asia.
