Time for some eggs

The spring brings changes. Nature here in the North kicks in with a blast and all the birds are nesting. For centuries, locals have rappeled down the steep walls of the birdcliffs to get some very tasty guillemot and razorbill eggs that are hatched in the cliffs in millions. These amazing birds don´t seem to mind. I guess they know that every spring the man comes to get few eggs, so they just lay another one.


We went  this week to Adalvik Bay in the Hornstrandir Nature Reserve to get few eggs. The ride was a very small 3  person boat that our friend, Gummi bought on eBay…! Pretty fast and good boat. We climbed from the shore up to a 20m high rock and found eggs lying everywhere.


Here are some photos.
