Finally I managed to get some photos of birds up here again. The winter is very long when I cant use my camera, but the spring just feels so much better when I finally can go out and take photos of my feathered friends again. Today I managed to find 40 + Black Guillemots (Teist), 2 Brünnick's Guillemot (Polarlomvi) and four Glaucous Gulls (Polarmåke). It may not be the largest number of birds anyone have heard about, but for me this is the start of a new fantastic season on Svalbard. My gull-trap has been visited, and now I am just awaiting the color-rings that I will be using, and then ringing-season will start. From now on I will probably be posting quite regularly on the blog, so dont forget about it.
