The biggest Razorbill colony

Here Kristin is taking a photo of a pair of Razorbills. You have to lie on your stomach to protect yourself from falling.


The cliff below is probably around 400 metres high and actually the biggest bird colony in Iceland and the biggest Razorbill colony in the world.

Álka – Razorbill – Alca torda

These photoes are from a birding trip we  took in 2011 to the Westfjords, more precisely from Látrabjarg, which is the Western most point of Iceland. It is also the Western most point of Europe if you don’t take the Azore Islands into count.
