Red-breasted Merganser Mergus serrator
The species appears to occur irregularly in a very limited number from late May to September. Usually the species occurs individually or in pairs. Single pairs are several times registered at different locations in the spring / early summer, and breeding attempts are therefore suspected. One winter recording exists, where a male Red-breasted Merganser was registered at the port in Longyearbyen.
