Being able to get into the colonies of the birds is a very exciting experience. You get to see lots of different behaviour such as breeding games, fights, mating, feeding and much more.

When I arrived at Hornöya, spring was in the air and the sun was shining. When I woke up the next morning, 10 cm of fresh snow had found it’s way to the ground. Interesting to use the snow for cool foregrounds and patterns around the birds. But in +10 degrees celsius the snow doesn’t last to long so I’ll try to go here again next year a little bit earlier!

The Black-Legged Kittiwakes are nesting on the steep cliffs and to them is it very important to get a good position for their nests. They will fight to get or keep the good spots and the fights can sometimes end in a tragedy.
