Hveragerdir to Sejalands Foss and more

Woke up early as the light is almost perpetual,a Raven barked over the hotel.
Blackbirds were singing and collecting worms for young the peace and serenity of the village here at Hveragerdi meant I could hear Redshank and
snipe calling along with Redwing all before breakfast.
We set off after breakfast passing through Selfoss and our first stop was Sejalands Foss at just over 60 metres high surrounded by cliffs and breeding Fulmar.
It was here we saw the sub species of Iceland wren singing high above the waterfall,nearby lies Gljufrabui waterfall as it tumbles down fom its source river just north of Trollagill (Troll Gorge).
Our next stop for lunch was Mydalur where we photographed Great and Arctic skuas.

On to the bird colonies at Reynisfjara with its huge basalt cliffs,its
columns rising vertically as the new breed of selfies climbed all over
them rather spoilt these magnificent monolithic monuments of nature.
Skogafoss held a splendid pair of Harlequinns along with Oystercatcher.
The Glacier at Solhiema jokull was birdless but impressive,on route to Dyrholaey territorial black tailed godwits obliged,arrived at Dyrholaey provided better views of puffins and at Markafljot and its river Red throated divers.
