In addition, other top passerines on the trip included Pine Grosbeak, Waxwings, Siberian Tit and Arctic Redpolls (including two gorgeous snow white males).
|Willow Tit - a pair were seen at Varjjat
|Female Snow Bunting - common in suitable areas. Large flocks of up to 200 in the far north.
|Male Lapland Bunting - just started arriving; we saw about ten individuals.
|Male Snow Bunting at Kongsfjord - part of a flock of 120+ birds.
|High tundra near Kongsfjord, a site for Dotterel, but they haven't arrived yet! The darker patch is a frozen lake.
|Holiday cottage at Kongsfjord. This area is good for Temminck's Stint and Purple Sandpiper, but not right now!
|The road from Siltefjord to Batsfjord, specially cleared for our party! When exactly does all this lot melt...
