Bird Cliffs of Alkefjellet
We were awed by the three hundred foot tall dolerite cliffs and columns used by thousands of Brunnich's guillemots as a breeding colony. Every nook, cranny, and jutting shelf of rock was used as a nesting site. The birds stood facing the cliff face holding the eggs in place on these narrow surfaces. We floated along at the base of the cliff in our zodiac and tried to take in all of the activity around us.
