In summertime Arctic foxes turn brown. This gives them a perfect camouflage on the tundra and in between the rocks and stones. This makes it often quite hard for us to find them. But in certain places it is quite easy to find one. Or two. Or three… Ingeborgfjellet is such a place. Underneath this bird-cliff there are always foxes. For good reason of course, as the cliff forms a steady supply of food throughout the summer. During this time the foxes will catch anything they can get their hands on and cache the parts that they don’t need immediately.
During the last landing of one trips we got really lucky. Apparently the foxes had done really well and an estimated 10 foxes were seen running around on the tundra. Highlight was one that came right up to one of the groups with some food in its mouth and burying it not far away from us.
