The current state of populations of the common tern Sterna hirundo (Linnaeus, 1758) and the Kamchatka tern S. camtschatica (Pallas, 1811) in northern Sakhalin

Abstract

This paper presents data on the numbers of nesting common and Kamchatka tern populations on the northeastern coast of Sakhalin Island over a more than 20-year period. Distribution maps of the main tern colonies (Chaika, Lyarvo, and Wrangel islands, and an unnamed island situated in Chaivo Bay) are given. Taking into account the current data concerning southern Sakhalin colonies, the total number of terns in Sakhalin Island is about 9000 pairs for the Kamchatka tern and up to 16000 pairs for the common tern. The main biotic and abiotic factors that determine the population dynamics and distribution of nesting terns in northern Sakhalin Island are enumerated.
