Abstract:

The marking of Lesser White-fronted Geese (Anser erythropus) with satellite transmitters in 2006 (www.piskulka.net; http://gis-lab.info/projects/piskulka) has shown Lake Shalkar-Karashatau (Karashan) to be a key stopover site during autumn migration via Kazakhstan (Fig. 1). The lake is situated in the northeastern part of Aktiubinsk Oblast, Kazakhstan (50°29′ N, 61°07′ E), not far from the border with Orenburg Oblast, Russia. An irregular shoreline overgrown with reeds and a vast water area make the lake a perfect stopover place for the geese. The Lesser White-fronted Goose and the Red-breasted Goose (Rufibrenta ruficollis) were the most abundant goose species on the lake and in its vicinity 12–17 October 2006. Geese were hunted not only in the adjacent fields, but also on the water, from motorboats, and we saw individuals of the forementioned species among the bagged geese. Lake Shalkar-Karashatau should be added to the list of goose stopover sites regularly monitored in Kazakhstan and measures should be taken there aimed at the protection of rare goose species.
