Iuzhnokazakhstanskaia oblast, Koksaraiskoe vodokhranilishche

First record of so huge number of wintering White-winged Larks in Kazahstan. In Arys irrigated lands the observers recorded eight flocks of 150 to 15 000 birds, totally about 30 000 birds. The reason of the concentration of Larks in one spot is the snowy weather in the day before the day of record.
