Iceland October 2015

The same 6 birders and the guide who were in New Jersey made a stop on the way home on Iceland the three first days in october. First we visited the wellknown tourist attractions Tingvellir, Gullfoss, Geysir and the Blue Lagoon. The rest of the time we were birdning and in good weather. It was only raining or snowing when we used the car to go to another birdingsite. The birdlist does not become long on Iceland, I saw 47 species and of those were 3 lifers. The top birds were of course Barrow´s Goldeneye and Harlequin Duck. But we also saw American Wigeon, lots of Glaucous and Iceland Gull, Great Northern Diver and Sooty and Manx Shearwater.
