Siberian driftwood, Ny-Alesund
Driftwood, probably from Siberian forests on the beach at Ny-Alesund, Kongsfjord, Svalbard - where there are no trees
Black Legged Kittiwake
Black Legged Kittiwake, rissa tridactyla, landing amongst fragments of sea ice Kongsfjord, Svalbard. Kittiwake populations have been under pressure in recent years, as changes to food sources, possibly caused by climate change and other environmental factors, have forced the birds to travel further, for longer, to get food.
