On the stay of the Kittiwake in the Azov-Black Sea basin

V. P. Belik

The article discusses the data collected by M. A. Dinkevich (2010) during sea expeditions in the Black Sea and the Sea of Azov. Records of Kittiwakes in this region, where up to 100–900 individuals can concentrate in winter, should be considered as accidental visits, but not typical wintering. And regular migrations of the Kittiwake over continental bodies of  water were not revealed at all.
