Abstract

One specimen of the sandwich tern was recovered from Kundukal point of Rameswaram Island with a metalic ring having a Russian Inscription. The present capture of the sandwich tern from Rameswaram area in June is of special interest as it is much earlier than its usual arrival in Sri Lanka coast which is around December. Its wintering area now includes Southeast coast of India including Rameswaram island.
