Arctic Fox (1 Viewer)

Can anyone recommend a site with a reasonable chance of seeing Arctic Fox in early-May (Western Iceland region preferably). My wife would be thrilled to see some of these (plus it will buy me bonus points when I have to drag her along to look at Gulls!).

The cliffs at Latraberg (spelling??) were a great bet in 2007 for us, I suspect they still are. Web search for 'andy mears Iceland' and my short report will pop up... All the details you need are in there.

It's like water off a duck's back!

Thanks for this. I'm heading there in June, I've hired a camper van and hoping the weather's on our side.

I was lucky enough to find this one about at 9:00 a-m. near the car park at Látrabjarg last year, 3rd june ;) Close enough to the puffins' cliffs, as you can gather... Fantastic birding place too

How did you do?

We made a last minute decision to go to Látrabjarg when we were heading back from Mývatn. If I'd known just how bad the roads were I wouldn't have made the effort but we did see one fox cross the road about 40km before Látrabjarg and another glimpsed on the way back at about 11.30pm.

Oh, and I ticked Brunnich's Guillemot.
