|Yesterday, the very first hatching of nests of Barnacle Geese was observed. Time to visit the islands.|
|Left and above:|
Roos has first contact with a newborn gosling.
We also find a nest of a Glaucous Gull. This species has asynchronous hatching. In the nest there is a dry chick, an egg with a hole and an egg with a star. The young will have different ages, and the oldest will be dominant. In case of food shortage that is the only one which will survive.
