Birdwatching in Reykjavík, Iceland

Amateur and serious birdwatchers alike are thrilled to discover Lake Tjörnin. Estimates suggest up to 50 species of water birds visit The Pond during the year, ranging from the small Arctic tern to the graceful whooper swan. Feeding the birds has become so popular that Icelanders use a phrase to describe it: “stærsta brauðsúpa í heimi.” This translates to “world’s largest bread soup.”
