First birdwatchers to arrive

Winterly conditions still reign up here, but nights are getting lighter, and the first birds have arrived - some to nest, others for a break before they continue north and east. The mass migration of seabirds is expected to reach Slettnes in the coming weeks, and the first group of birdwatchers will arrive on April 28th.  

Great numbers of Snow Buntings hang around the lighthouse these days.
