Common Goldeneye Bucephala clangula
The species seems to occur annually since 2007, and far more sporadically before that time. Mainly individuals or smaller groups (overweight of males and juveniles) are registered during the spring migration in May. Some of these ducks seem to remain on Svalbard until August. Breeding attempts are not suspected. Three winter observations (all adult males) have been recorded.
