dc.description.abstractArctic Terns Sterna paradisaea have a record-long migration between their breeding grounds in the Arctic and wintering areas in the Antarctic. Nevertheless, return dtaes to north Norway were remarkably constant over a 35-y period (1981-2015), arriving in Troms within a 13-d time window in mid to late May. Since 1993, arrival dates have advanced by about four days. No relationships were found between arrival dates and large-scale weather proxies such as the North Atlantic Oscillation or sea temperatures, but when terns were approaching Troms, headwinds tended to delay arrivals whereas tailwinds advanced them.en_US
dc.description.sponsorshipThis study was funded by Tromsø University Museum. I also thank members of the local branch of the Norwegian Ornithological Society and members of the public who reported arrival dates to me or to www.artsobservasjoner.no. Without them this study would have been impossible.en_US
