A memorable day in Iceland (1 Viewer)


Hi Julian

Probably one of the most impressive one day "clean-ups" (to use a hideous term) ever by a visiting birder, especially seeing Arctic Fox too, which is not at all easy, and Snowy Owl. You've got a bit of a nerve though coming here and seeing two birds I've not never seen in Iceland (Yellow Wagtail and Great Shearwater) albeit out at sea. Excellent photographs. Barrow's Goldeneye and Blue Whale on your next trip?

Love the layout of the report - great pix of the birds too

I also think the Birding Iceland website is terrific, Edward - especially the introduction to the target birds,and the pop-up status for rarities.

Next trip

I'd love to think / hope there will be a next trip! Just have to find some good excuses. One thing we joked about (but "many a true word said in jest") was the possibility of cracking the Icelandic day record of 74 (if I remember correctly) species.

It seems to me that this should be quite possible with an early start to the day....and no beer stops. Maybe next spring......
