Abstract
    Between 23 June and 1 August 1974, I sailed with the yacht "Atalante" from Nieuport (Belgium), along the east coast of Great Britain, to Thorshavn (Faeroes), several points along the east and north-east coasts of Iceland, then to Angmagssalik in Greenland and back, via Reykjavik, the Vestmann Islands (Iceland) and Edinburgh (Scotland) to Nieuport. Our speed was about 9 knots (17km/h). Birds were recorded during standard one-hour observation periods (in fractions of a quarter of an hour), from a point situated at the rear of the yacht, about 1.5 m above sea-level. They could be seen in all directions but the visibility was rather poor forwards. Although engaged in other tasks outside of these standard procedures, I was sometimes able to record the number of birds present, and they were also noted in harbours. These results, being obtained from estimates rather than actual counts, are presented separately.
