Högbonden is an island in the High Coast and Kvarken World Heritage of Sweden. It has an old lighthouse and a large community of birds, in this case Arctic Terns.

The Arctic Tern is believed to have the longest migration among birds in the world. The breeding takes place close to the Arctic circle (e.g. at Högbonden) but they spend the winter in Antarctica. That makes a trip of around 35000km, 22000 miles, each year.

Hogbonden can be reached by a short boat trip from the small villages of Barsta and Bönhamn of Nordingrå.

Högbonden är en ö och fyrplats i Världsarvet Höga Kusten och Kvarken, strax utanför Nordingrå. Den lilla ön nås med båt från fiskelägena Barsta och Bönhamn i Nordingrå.

Panoramat visar en koloni av Silvertärna, den fågel som torde flytta längst. Den häckar här uppe nära norra polcirkeln men tillbringar vintern i Antarktis.
