Post 1 – Puffins! Our July 2016 adventure was a Puffinfest. Puffins flying. Puffins fishing. Puffins don’t tell fish stories, they just proudly show you the catch and let you photograph. Then when you are not looking, they go feed their babies (they don’t want you to see their burrow.
Great skuas, which love baby puffins and terns, are fiercely protective of their own nests.
Arctic terns seem to always nest in the wrong places. But when they nest close to the glacial lagoon, we get to see them on the ice, waiting for the fish run. Then they fly and dive.
It seems like only the loons are paddling around family style.
Watch for the next post – ice, glaciers, waterfalls, and Iceland landscapes.
