The breeding peaks in Varanger

The breeding season is on its peak in Varanger. Arctic Warbler is still singing at Neiden, the White-tailed Eagle has youngs in the nests and the auks have youngs at Hornøya.

No big rarities the last days, but waders gather in good numbers. This is the time for the biggest rarities in Varanger, so anything can show up anytime now.
