… the arc­tic sum­mer is on its way!

The Litt­le auk colo­nies that are in many places on the slo­pes high abo­ve Lon­gye­ar­by­en are acti­ve, some­thing that is easy to hear now. Snow bun­tings are play­ing their spring games on snow-free patches of tun­dra, which are gro­wing lar­ger day after day. And the geese have arri­ved after their spring migra­ti­on. Sum­mer on 78 degrees north is on its way.

Pink-foo­ted goo­se in Lon­gye­ar­by­en, 22nd May.

The end of the arc­tic win­ter …

The win­ter has come to an end in Spits­ber­gen, and it is being repla­ced by a short in-bet­ween sea­son. The snow mobi­les are calm now, the snow is get­ting wet and hea­vy and the snow-free patches lar­ger and lar­ger. Around 20th/21st June, the first small run­let was flowing down over snow in the river bed of Lon­gye­a­rel­va, the river in Lon­gye­ar­by­en.

Calm days, not­hing big hap­pe­ning here other­wi­se. Good.
