Kittiwakes taking over in Barentsburg

Black-legged Kittiwakes - a kind of gull, nesting on the window frames of dilapidated apartment buildings in Barentsburg, a Russian coal mining town in the Norwegian Archipelego of Svalbard. Once home to about 2000 miners and their families, less than 500 people now live here.
