About the magnificent birds I manage to capture with my camera at Svalbard.

They are coming back!
Finally, over the last week, I have started to see some Glaucous Gulls (Polarmåke) again. The largest group was of ten birds, but now they can just bring in theire friends so that I can look for more rare gulls in between them. A nice surprise was that I found an adult Iceland Gull (Grønlandsmåke) flying together with a Glaucous. So now Im hoping that the invasion of IG to Western Europe can bring some of these gulls up here. And who knows, maybe there can be a Kumlien's or Thayer's Gull in amongst the birds coming up here?
I am an eager birder who have moved to Svalbard and Longyearbyen, and spend as much time as possible out with my feathered friends. I will use this blog to tell all of you who visit this blog about the birds and other wonders of nature that interest me and that I manage to get photos of. If you are coming to Svalbard, or if you see an interesting bird while on Svalbard, please dont hesitate to contact me by giving a comment to one of my posts. If you are coming to Longyearbyen and would like to contact me for info on where to find the wildlife, please contact me on: firstname.lastname@example.org
