Another species that can be found on the coastlines all around the archipelago is the Ruddy Turnstone. With anywhere between 50 and 500 breeding pairs, it’s nowhere a common sight, but the highest chance is along the western shores and fjords.
Turnstones also breed on the tundra and rely on their camouflage, but are a bit better in defending their nests against bird attacks. However, Arctic Foxes and Glaucous Gulls still make up for a fair number of chicks that get killed.
When the breeding season is over, they migrate south towards western Europe and Africa where they spent the winter.
