On 6-7 and 16-17 August 1986, during two 25 hour periods, all bird movements were recorded at Kapp Lee, (Svalbard). The results are summarized in table 1. Only a small number of seabirds was seen flying either north or south. Most of the movements were southward bound, indicating migration. The numbers were low because of the low seabird densities in this part of Svalbard and the small hinterland. See for Kittiwakes Lensink (1989).
