The Black Guillemot belongs to the Auks family. A bird I have seen once before, in Scotland. and only as an adult. I like this black bird with white patches and red legs. I did not expect to find it in Varanger. A bonus to the trip. :)  It did not come to the hide and feeding place. I only saw it from the boat and from land.
