Sea ducks at the Bengtksär lighthouse

On May 4 and 05, 2019, Pierre-Lou had the chance to visit the Bengtskär lighthouse. This small island, approximately 200m in diameter, is located south of the Turku Archipelago and is home to a large breeding eider colony (Somateria mollissima).

 

Many Long-tailed ducks (Clangula hyemalis) were also in staging off the island.

A big thank you to the Wilson family who welcomed me and gave me the chance to find out these singular atmospheres.
