Iceland Day9 Borgarfjörður Eystri

Why is Puffin so popular? Is it because of that charming face? No, it is not. I once worked with someone who had a face just like Puffin’s, so it’s hard for me to agree with this opinion. So, is it movement? Or is it because they catch a lot of food? For me, I think it’s movement. They move, stop, look around, and then stand still. It may resemble a penguin. I have never seen penguins in the wild, though.

Borgarfjörður Eystri seems to be a famous place to observe such Puffins. The slope of the cliff where they nest is very gentle, and the wood paths are laid out so that you can see their burrows from your eye level. In addition, the number of Puffin is very large, and they are usually always popping up somewhere or flying around with a fish in their mouth. Finally, Puffin are very close together. One of them came down on the woodpath and walked around with a fish in his mouth, which excited all the visitors.

This is a full day of photography in Borgarfjörður Eystri. A day is a morning and an evening. Evening is at 21:00. It takes 1.5 hours to get to the hotel, so it’s a fair amount of travel, but it’s still worth the time here. Incidentally, when Puffin returns to his den with a fish in his mouth, you can hear what sounds like a bullfrog croaking.
