THE BIRD MOUNTAIN, RUNDE
Runde lies on an isolated island out at sea, in the commune of Herøy. This is Norway's most south lying  and and less in hostile bird mountain. The mountain raises from the sea 300 m up to the sky. Several hundreds and thousands of birds nest here: Atlantic Puffin, Kittiwake,
Alcids, Thick-billed Murre, Common Murre, Shag, Artic Petrel and Gannets. There are all together over 220 species observed.

If you visit the bird mountain while the birds are nesting (spring and early summer), you will experience hundreds of thousands of birds flying around. It is an amazing sight. The landscape on the island has low vegetation, and there are walking paths that makes visiting easier.
