We carried out bird migration stationary observations from May 6 to June 6 2009 on the northern coast of the Gydan peninsula in the eastern part of the Mongocheyaha river delta (72°22′ 78°36′). First Bramblings were observed on May 29 in group of 15 individuals together with Snow Buntings held around for a day and then migrated eastward along the coast. Later we regularly recorded single Bramblings and groups up to 10 individuals alone or together with Snow Buntings and Horned Larks. In all cases they did not stay a long time in the area of observation and slowly moved to the east along the high sea coast. The area of observation is located 400 km far from the northern border of the species breeding range. [Russian].
