Stauran Fuglefjell is located in Syltefjord in the municipality of Båtsfjord.
With its stretch of 8 km and over 220 meters high, it is one of Norway's largest birdwatchers.
Earlier, it was estimated that 3-4 million birds, essentially Kitti wakes, hooked here.
But the stock has fallen back so that it reaches about 150.000 pairs of Kitti wakes here, which makes Stauran Norway's largest crank location.
In addition, a large colony of Northern gannets hatches here. All, lomvi, polarlomvi and puffins are also well represented.
