Trip report: Iceland Birding with a Camera® (BwC) (June 2021)

Guided by Lisle Gwynn. This was a set departure tour.

Iceland scarcely needs an introduction; the original land of fire and ice. Sitting just below the Arctic Circle, some way north-west of mainland Europe, Iceland is a refreshingly cool break from early summer for most of us, being at its best (for birds) in June. This year’s ’Birding with a Camera’ tour was a roaring success, with birds aplenty, stunning geological highlights, and unusually warm weather. Despite a gloriously sunny day in the Westfjords, we did have to endure a few rather sporadic showers and downpours, but they were relatively few and
easy to wait out. Still, it did nothing to dampen our spirits and we found plenty of beautifully diffused light and lots of great birds to point binoculars and lenses at.
