CBO & Iceland: 1955-2015 presented by Peter Munro
In 1955 a small CBO group, led by Arnold Bennington, travelled to our
northern neighbour by Steam Packet
from the Port of Leith.
During an intensive few weeks, travelling
by Icelandic Pony and living in tents, they
penetrated the island interior and
managed to ring a wide selection of birds
including Whimbrel, Pink-footed Goose,
Golden Plover, Long-tailed duck and
This year marks the 60th Anniversary of
that trip, and Peter Munro, who visited
Iceland in February, will reflect on the
conditions and birds the CBO team
encountered in 1955 and compare these
with his recent experiences.
