Female Ptarmigan
Female Ptarmigan, Gullfjell, Bergen, 23 April 2015

Gullfjellet is the closest site to Bergen to see this alpine speciality. They are usually seen anywhere above Redningshytten but if one is lucky and patient they can occasionally be picked up with a telescope from lower down by scanning the slopes. This species can also be found on the Hardangervidda
