drone flight to glacier

17 June 2022

On facebook I come across a drone video of Kongsvegen. Something to share.


And I was looking for another video which some years ago, Geir Wing gabrielsen of the Norwegian Polar Institute showed to me, about feeding kittiwakes near the glacier front. The glacier river coming deep in the fjord, surfaces krill and the kittiwakes feed on this. The strong current makes them float away from the glacier front and the fly back when they are in the back row. Until an ice fall lets them fly up.
