While my last two posts on Iceland were about plants, I now switch over to birds. Many, many seabirds come to the northern atlantic each year for breeding. Some of them are also well-known in the North Sea, at the German coast.
Surprisingly, I didn’t spot many of the common seagulls, which you can see usually in big numbers at the European shores.
I saw skuas and arctic skuas, oystercatcher, common eider (unfortunately only from a distance at night), harlequin ducks, common snipes (which make a beautiful noise at flight), snow buntings and lots of arctic terns.
