Last weekend I visited the only arctic community of the western Europe, Vardø. 5 minutes outside of Vardø lies the island of Hornøya. Hornøya is a very important breeding ground for many of our Norwegian seabirds, such as Kittiwakes, Razorbills, Puffins and Guillemots. This is a perfect place to really get close on to the birds as they are not very shy.

The weather on these northern latitudes changes rapidly. In one hour you can have snowfall, sunshine, mist and rain. This can offer some pretty cool situations and different lights, making it extra fun to work with the birds.
I will make a few more postings from Hornøya
and in these I will present each spieces for them self and hopefully present some even more interesting pictures.
