Red-necked Phalaropes from Iceland

Almost everywhere we went in Iceland, where there was water, Red-necked Phalaropes would be present. These tiny little birds were hard to ignore as they darted around at great speed, frantically catching flies. I ended up taking many more shots of them than planned, they are very photogenic and are hard to resist as they present themselves right in front of you. On several occasions I was lying down photographing something on the water and would have a Phalarope swim between me and the subject. Great birds and great fun to do. 54 new images of them on my website: Steven Round Bird Photography

Pink-footed Geese

Back in October last year, my friend Rich and I spent the best part of a day photographing Pink-footed Geese. It was quite a few years since I had photographed them properly. This was mainly down to timing, wind direction and sunshine. Anyway, on this day all these factors came together and we got some pleasing results. With plenty of birds, which were still migrating in from the north, the skies were full of them. It may be another 6 or 7 years before the conditions are right again, but I now have enough images of them to last, and have just added 77 to my main website. Here's just a few of them.

Fulmars from Iceland

Another of the Iceland species processed. The Fulmar was in great numbers there, giving us the chance to get a good variety of shots. From them soaring around cliff tops, to a large group of them squabbling at a water outlet from a fish factory, and close up of them perched. Most poses were covered. 59 of these images now added to my main website - http://stevenround-birdphotography.com

Harlequin Ducks from Iceland

I'm still fighting a losing battle with my backlog of images, but aim to have a real push at clearing a good chunk of them throughout the winter. Hopefully, plenty of blog posts will follow over the next few months.
I start with a few of the 44 Harlequin Duck images I have added to my site. These were taken in Iceland last year. This is one of the main species that birders go to Iceland to see. They spend the summer on fast flowing rivers which makes them tricky, but fun to photograph. Especially when they disappear in the rapids to come up 50m or more downstream.
