Icelandic Nature

Just back after another working week in north west Iceland, a little south of Isajfordur, where I got the chance on this trip to snap off a few shots of local and common breeding birds. It is always a delight to see birds in breeding plumage, on the breeding grounds, as compared to migrating through Ireland or stopping here for the winter.

  4. If you have never met an Eclectus I must warn you that it only takes a moment for these birds to steal your heart away. They can make you laugh, make your heart melt, and at times make you want to bite nails because they can be terribly hard-headed little critters. For more information visit

  5. On the off chance that you have never met an Eclectus I should caution you that it just pauses for a minute for these winged creatures to win your love away. They can make you snicker, make your heart liquefy, and on occasion make you need to nibble nails since they can be horrendously determined little critters. For more data visit
