along the coast

Text & Photos © K. Gauger

Slender-billed Gulls can be seen regugularly in small numbers
Pallas's Gulls are winter visitors along the coast and around the lagre inland lakes





Mediterranean Gulls have some small colonies here
Dalmatian Pelicans pass in flocks and also spend the winter in the wetlands
Arctic Skuas are regular migrants in small numbers
Red-necked Phalarops, resting in lagoons, there have been observations of tens of thousands in a single flock!
Tereks can be seen mainly in May and August/September
immense numbers of White-winged Terns migrate along the coast
Gull-billed Terns are scarce breeders, here in Shirvan NP
so are Little Terns, they suffer from lots of disturbance on the beaches
together with the latter ones these Collared Pratincoles were breeding in Kura delta
