After this trip I got to see more of the areas surrounding Longyearbyen, and while I was working with the Little Auks in Bjørndalen, I allso got in close contact with the Arctic Foxes that searches the Little Auk colonies quite often for food. Not much happened, bird-wise, when I was still in Longyearbyen, but that was to be changed quite radically when I went onto the sailboat "S/Y Arctica" for counting birds on the eastern side of the archipelago. But that will be told in my next blog.
