This video says about itself:
Souvenir from our last trip to Svalbard in July 204 with this short video of ivory gulls and an iceberg falling down completely near our boat.
This is a video of a young, first winter, ivory gull in Ontario, Canada.
One of the places where people regularly see ivory gulls is near the husky dog cages, just east of Longyearbyen village.
No ivory gull this night. We do see hundreds of common eider ducks there. Their egg-laying season has just begun. They started to nest here, because the dogs scare off the Arctic fox predators of ducks. The dogs, being in cages, can’t harm the ducks.
On the bank of a stream, a purple sandpiper.
We continue to the Adventdalen valley.
Male and female king eider ducks.
As we return to the dog cages, an Arctic skua.
