Manx Shearwater are one of those seabird species that deserve a special treatment. They nest in burrows,  migrate as far as South America from the north Atlantic and  their extra skills to glide above the oceans 🌊  are reflected in the popular name.

White beaked dolphins might be a bulky species but they surely are quite acrobatic.  Socializing is a vital part of the culture of these intelligent creatures and these displays are believed to be an important part of it.

A fierce breeder 🥊🌍
.

Arctic terns are notoriously aggressive towards any intruder. As they migrate from pole to pole you better be tough!

The lord of the skies 🪂

Great skuas are THE predator in Iceland. However, in Ingólfshöfði the population is declining thanks to another predator, the Arctic fox. The game of the survival of the fittest is tough 💪.

Those eyes 👀
.
.
.
Harbour seals are usually laying on top of exposed rocks when the tide is low. The seemly laziness cannot be confused with the energetic behaviour they show while foraging, as they can spend days at sea before coming back to chillax in their rockeries.

Big mouth 🙊
.
.

This extremely long and curved beak (1/3 of the body length!) helps whimbrel to get invertebrates and crabs in the muddy intertidal areas 🦀🦐🐚⛱️. Common breeder in tundra habitats, spends the winters in warmer climates, like Spain 🇪🇸.

Sandeels 🐟, northern krill 🦐 and fish larvae are the favourite delicacies that puffins are enjoying these days. Busy parents bring constantly fuel for their little pufflings 🐣.

Busy cliffs 🧗‍♂️
.
.

Most of the eggs have already hatched  and busy parents are keeping their youngsters well fed. Soon, the guillemot males will take care of their offspring in the water for few weeks, until they learn all is needed to survive in this world. These ones were taking a break before the task starts 😅.

The discovery of the month 🎉
.
.

This black and white warbler has been spotted in Snaefellness 🗻 and it's been the most photographed bird in the country last days. A vagrant from the new world 🌎, only seen in Iceland 4 times! A little treasure among the birch forests 🌳

The beauty in the detail 🕵️‍♂️

You can count the ridges on the puffin's beak to know its age, like a tree 🌲.

Flying torpedo🚀
.
.
.
To capture a flying puffin is a hard task. They can fly at speeds of up to 80 km/h 💨, but sometimes they form a "puffin wheel" 🐧🎡when approaching the colony. If wind direction and your location are good, you can be in the right place at the right time 🍀.

Puffins in the snow 🐧❄️
.
.
.
Unusual low temperatures are hitting north Iceland and therefore "expected" snowfall affect all the summer visitors. Hopefully, it won't have any effect in their breeding success 🤞
