Summary

After numbers fell to just 200 pairs, the Sociable Lapwing was graded "critically endangered". Phillippa speaks to our reporter in Kazakhstan, who is with Paul Donald of the RSPB and local scientist Maxim Koshkin to locate the only satellite tagged Sociable Lapwing in the world. Earlier in the year, a female Atlantic Salmon was tagged and named Wylam - has she started her colossal migration to the source of the River Tyne? Elsewhere, we hear about the Spectacled Eider, an extraordinary duck that dives down through the icy waters of the Bering Sea to find food.
