Roy Mangersnes - Kittiwakes
Sometimes we see hundreds of Kittiwakes in front of the blue glacier walls on Spitsbergen, Svalbard. Here they find food among the melting ice, and every time the glacier collapses they take of in a uniform swarm. This particular place there must have been several thousand birds, and after a long wait a piece of ice came down and they all lifted from the water in a graceful panic.
