Thanks all for your comments also nice to know others think this place beautiful, as do we. Svalbard is indeed up in the Arctic and I think governed by Norway since the early 20th Century. There is also a Dark bellied form which also comes this way to Winter and is from the Greenland breeding grounds, America has the Black Brant which is another form of the same type.

Is Svalbard the Norwegian island far to the north and close to the pole? Brilliant picture by the way!

About Cowgazer

Cowgazer

I am Peter, brought up in the center of Manchester, UK. But was a square peg in a round hole there, worked 33 years as stockman in dairy farming then made redundant. Luckily got a job managing a garden nursery for a couple of years, but had to leave as tenancy came to an end. Couldn't find work so relocated to Wales and am now a self-employed gardener, great move, good things come out of hard times. Digital tech has made photography affordable to me and I love it, compliments my walking and Birdwatching. At present on a steep learning curve, new things are always good, stretch your mind and keep you sane-ish.
