Svalbard June 2019

Hi, this June I'm looking for people to join me on the Norwegian archipelago of Svalbard this summer. I have a small group of birdwatchers and nature-lovers, photographers, filmmakers and artists coming, so whatever your interest there is opportunity to fulfil it!

I'm going from 1st June to 13th June so you'd be welcome for any amount of time within that period.

Full details on my website, and message through the link if you're interested

http://www.paulalistaircollins.co.uk...ctic-adventure

**Please note this is not a workshop but a private non-commercial holiday I am organising.

This is an amazing chance to see animals such as Blue and Beluga Whales, Walrus, Arctic Foxes, Reindeer, seabird colonies and maybe even Polar Bears in the stunning setting of the Norwegian fjords. Staying in a traditional timber lodge, with exploration of the local region’s wildlife and culture, this trip is much more affordable than other Arctic trips as we'll be staying put in Longyearbyen with day trips to glaciers and smaller islands.

Birds we saw last year included:
King Eider, Steller's Eider (very rare), Common Eider, Long-Tailed Duck, Pink-Footed Goose, American Snow Goose (very rare), Svalbard Ptarmigan, Red-Throated Diver, Grey Phalarope, Red-Necked Phalarope, Little Auk, Brunnich's Guillemot, Black Guillemot, Common Guillemot, Puffin, Arctic Skua, Glaucous Gull, Kittiwake, Purple Sandpiper, "Blue" Fulmar, Snow Bunting.
Plus locally rare shorebirds like Golden Plover and Dunlin, and a small chance of rare gulls (Sabine's, Ross's, Ivory).

Can't do it, but I like the idea. I'll keep an eye on your website for future trips.

Hi Arbu, would you like to be added to my monthly newsletter? I have details on upcoming trips and workshops that I do, and other photography-related posts.

Could you give an indication of price - I'd like to have an idea before deciding whether it's worth contacting you, and your website doesn't give this information.
