Vigur is the second largest island of the Ísafjarðardjúp fjord in Westfjords, around two kilometres in length and 400 metres in width. It is the home of a single sheep farm, and eider down production from the nesting eider ducks. And thousands of other birds – puffins, terns, guillemots, gulls. Also the only windmill in Iceland, built in the 19th century.
The terns were nesting when we visited, and they were madly protective of their young. We had to carry sticks above our heads because they would dive bomb and attack the highest point.
The bird life was wonderful.
