Sula , Volume 10 - Issue 5 p. 183- 192
An overview is given of the records of Little Auks Alle alle in Germany, including the North Sea with the island of Helgoland and the Wadden Sea, the Baltic Sea and inland sites in the years 1900-94 <n= 980) and during the influx in 1995 (n= 1125). Numbers of Little Auks recorded in Germany have increased in the 1980s and 1990s, but this is partly effort-related. At 12 sites, 91% of all 2105 birds were seen. The phenology (described in five-day periods) in 1900-94 shows a peak in late autumn (October/November), with smaller numbers from January to March. In 1995, a major influx occurred between 28 October and 1 November, smaller numbers and inland records were reported until the end of November.
