Abstract

In Mongolia, there are 58 species of shore birds have been recorded and most of them migrate along the East Asian-Australasian Flyway. However, there are very limited information about shorebirds in the country. A numerous water points that scattered throughout the dry steppe of the eastern part of Mongolia are significantly important place for migratory birds to use as stopover sites during migration periods. We have been conducting migratory shorebirds at the Chukh lake, in northeastern Mongolia since 2019. During the monitoring periods from 2019 to 2022, a number of shorebirds were sharply decreased by 50% every year and Anatidae species composition at the lake were also changed due to water level increases.
