We will focus on wildlife in and around Longyearbyen and over many different bird species are registered in and around Longyearbyen (http://www.svalbardbirds.com/artsliste-web.htm) But, during the Arctic polar night (approximately November to Mars) it's limited to Arctic fox, Svalbard reindeer and the Svalbard rock ptarmigan. Led light, blitz, head lamp and other light sources is useful aids to bring with you. Anyway, I have various light sources and will assist you with the extra light.
