Greenland is host to over 230 different species of bird throughout the year, all of them flitting around the spectacular landscape. The island plays home to about 60 permanent bird species, meaning that the vast majority of winged occupants are part-timers, migrating in and out of the area at different times of the year. This is how one surfbirder described their Greenland adventure.
“We had an exciting and action-packed week seeing a great range of special wildlife and some truly spectacular scenery. Although not reaching our intended destination further north due to unseasonal sea ice, we still had a thoroughly enjoyable cruise with highlights including multiple sightings of Humpback Whales, a very obliging Minke Whale and lots of birds including hundreds of Red-necked Phalaropes and superb views of White-tailed Eagle. All this coupled with a lot of good fun along the way.”
