An Easy jet flight took us to Keflavik Anna,Joan,Ken and I on a Bird Finders trip here we met Trausti Gunnarsson  our leader and set off for
Njardvikurfitjum lagoon where our first predicted bird was a LBB Gull.
It was only 5 degrees as we saw our first Eiders.
Next stop a dock area near Keflavik produced good views of
Iceland gull.

Then it was the lighthouse at Gardsskaga ,sea watching here produced a Humpback whale,onwards to Sandgerdi then Grindavik for lunch at
Briyggjan(the pier) amazing lobster soup here.
