Kittiwakes follow our ship – Svalbard 2023

Kittiwakes follow our ship. There was a lot of ice around Svalbard in the summer of 2023. As our ship pushed through the ice north of Svalbard Polar Cod were exposed from below the ice. This brought in lots of Kittiwakes as they like to feast on these delicacies. The Kittiwakes flew all around us – over the ship, above Polar Bear tracks and across the shadow of our small ship’s infrastructure. The breathtaking backdrop of the Svalbard scenery just added to the magic of the moment.
