Very true Alan, the researchers seem to have forgotten the work by Conrad Lorenz et al. in the early part of the 20th century.

While I do not have the time to go chasing the publications, the claim to "In the first published account of wild animals recognising individuals of another species," is not right. there have been publications reporting the behaviour of birds and mammals which learned to recognise individuals and behaved differently towards them.
An interesting report all the same.
