A visit to Látrabjarg, N.W.
Iceland in 1956
This paper describes a visit to the bird-
cliff Látrabjarg in July 1956. A description
is given og the cliff and cyclic processes
involving the falling off of more or less
vegetated parts of the cliff at their sub-
sequent recolonization by vegetation. Fift-
een bird species were observed. An acco-
unt is given of distribution, nesting habitat
and in some cases approximate numbers of
the breeding seabird species. Traditional
local methods of exploiting the seabirds of
the cliff are described.
