Brünnich’s guillemots, Svalbard and the Netherlands


This video shows a Brünnich’s guillemot, on 29 July 2012, near Lauwersoog in the Netherlands. This Arctic bird is very rare in the Netherlands.

The recent Dutch Svalbard expedition went to the biggest Brünnich’s guillemot nesting colony of the archipelago: Stellingfjellet, with about 100,000 nests. There, young fledgling birds were then jumping off the cliffs to the sea, often accompanied by their fathers.
