Notes Status and especially flyway association is questionable. Anker-Nilssen et al. (2000) states: “The Sabine's gull migrates to oceanic waters in the southern hemisphere (Blomqvist & Elander 1981). No ringing recoveries from the Barents Sea Region exist. A westward movement from Siberian colonies is unlikely as very few Sabine's gulls have been observed in the Barents Sea, Norwegian Sea and Scottish waters (Dementjev & Gladkov 1951b, Haftorn 1971, Sharrock 1971). Birds breeding in Svalbard probably belong to the East Greenland population (Cramp & Simmons 1983). Siberian and Alaskan birds pass through the Bering Strait in autumn (Cogswell 1977)”.
