The blackheaded gull is a common sight in the sea-region around Ittoqqortoormiit.

The stoat is present year around in the Ittoqqortoormiit area , but some years it is more common than others . It is a fast little creature and is often difficult to find - or photograph !

The long-tailed skua is a common sight at the open water polonia at Kap Tobin .

The ptarmigan is like the stoat : some years we see hundreds and some years we dont see any. Ptarmigan camouflages itself after the season and is often difficult to see . Ptarmigan is a very popular delicatess in Ittoqqortoormiit and in Greenland in general .

The wheatears are very common during summertime in Ittoqqortoormiit .
