Every spring and summer season they live side by side with the Kittiwakes that breed here. Several hundred Kittiwakes have their nestsites on the bulidings of Kårøya, and their sounds and sights are quite a tourist attraction. Kårøya is a keysite for the monitoring of the Kittiwakes on Røst, as the biologist have easy access to nests and birds here. A stay over at Kårøya rorbucamping is heaven for a birdlover. Lying in the soft summer grass looking at listening to the Kittiwakes is healthy for the soul, and their fascinating voices will never leave your memory.
