The first record of the Great Snipe in Kazakhstan, after more than 30 years, confirmed by photography. The last record of this species dates back to 1987, when on May 7 a migrating Great Snipe was caught in the Tentek delta (Khrokov et al. 1993).

The first nesting record in the Kostanay region. It is known that the Ural Owl breeds in the South-Western Altai and Kalba, there is also evidence of nesting in the North Kazakhstan region (Zuban, Kalashnikov 2017) and in the East Kazakhstan region in forests north of Semey (Karpov, Levin 2005). In the Kostanay region, this species was occasionally found only during wintering (A.Yu. Timoshenko, G.Yu. Timoshenko 2021, Yu. Malkov, birds.kz).

The second record of the species on the territory of Kazakhstan. Observed by a group of 6 ornithologists on the eastern coast of the Aral Sea on May 11-12, 2022 and on the northern coast on May 12-13, 2022, where, according to S. Baskakova, it was especially numerous - several males singing at the same time on clayey chinks. For the first time this species was recorded on May 9, 2018 in Mangistau in the Karagie depression near the Ashibulak spring (see the site gallery).

The northernmost record of the Trumpeter Finch on the territory of Kazakhstan. A few more southern records are known: on the territory of Mangystau, on artesians near the village of Kanshengel, both in nesting and non-nesting time. According to unpublished data, one birds was observed on May 13, 2021 on artesians in western Betpakdala by Svetlana Baskakova and Nicolas Moulin. Also recently, in the Turkestan region in the Karaktau mountains in the eastern part of the Kyzylkum desert, on May 9-10, 2021, two pairs of the Trumpeter Finch and an unfinished nest, subsequently abandoned, were found (Fedorenko, 2022).
