Látrabjarg, is a promontory and the western most point in Iceland (and Europe). The cliffs are a home to millions of birds, including puffins, northern gannets, guillemots, black legged kittiwake and razorbills. It is vital for their survival as it hosts up to 40% of the world population for some species e.g. the Razorbill. It is Europe’s largest bird cliff, 14km long and up to 440m high.(wikipedia)
This recording was made on the cliff edge in Ritugjá (Kittiwake Canyon), ca 90 meters above sea level and several hundreds meters fron Bjargtangar lighthouse. This recording contains mainly Kittiwake and chicks, also Razorbill which are mostly lower in the cliff
