Sasha - breeding bird of Kolguev
On 3-8-2006 we caught Sasha in the Erkapenya Lowlands and fitted him with the transmitter formerly used by Bouke. We were able to track the bird for just one week before he could kick-off the PTT himself. First time we tried a harness made from teflon instead of leather. The PTT send data of it`s position for several weeks but two trials to rescue the PTT failed. In summer 2007 we returned to the place, but found it 30cm flooded.
Nevertheless Sasha himself was seen several times lateron the winter time, so he is okay.
