Birds and Landscapes at Bulbjerg

After being in Germany as a jury member in the GDT - EWPY contest, I simply wanted to relax and therefore I took a vacation for a week in a beautiful summerhouse near Bulbjerg in the North-western part of Jutland, Denmark.

My original plan was to relax and being together with my family and only make photos when the weather and my mind was up for it; the weather was to become perfect and the fresh air and the sun charged my batteries fast and I ended up making some real fine images - A very successful week!

Bulbjerg is a 47 meter high limestone cliff that creates a characteristic projection on the coast of Hanherred towards Jammerbugten. The core of the Bulbjerg island is limestone which is created in the ocean about 60 million years ago. The steep and inaccessible cliff is Denmark’s only bird cliff and breeding ground for close to five hundred couples of the North Atlantic seagull, Riden, which is also known as the three-toed gull. The rare fulmar can also be found breeding at Bulbjerg, however, not on the sale scale.

The ocean continues to wear on Bulbjerg and therefore the entire north side towards the ocean is formed as a steep cliff. Each year there are smaller landslides and every once in a while larger pieces fall into the ocean.
