E. A. Diadicheva

Keywords: waders, seasonal migrations, dynamics, species composition, numbers, Dzharylhach Island

The article considers the species composition, the number dynamics and the distribution of migrating waders on Dzharylhach Island in spring and autumn of 2001. A total, 31 species were recorded during the ornithological studies of migrating waders, carried out on the Dzharylhach Island. Among them, 22 species were transit migrants, and 9 species were met during breeding and migrating on the island. The data are given about stay timing, the number and the number dynamics for 29 species in spring and 28 ones during autumn migration. 10 rare wader species, entered in the Red Data Book of Ukraine, were observed. The observation confirms a status of Dzharylhach Island as a key area for migratory waterbirds.
