But most of the photos here are taken in the largest Little Auk (Alkekonge) -colony close to town. The sensation of being sat in between hundreds of these really cute birds which are trusting you so much that they barely notice that you move around a few meters away from them. These small alcids are one of my topten favourite birds, and even though their laughing calls can make me go crazy after a while, I still find myself maused by their personalities every time I sit amongst them. Just to make it clear to begin with, I did not walk as close to the birds as it might seem in some of the photos, the birds came closer to me while I was lying there on the painfull rocks!
