A guillemot and a falcon

This morning we found a guillemot lying on the black beach outside of Djupivogur.  It was a bit helpless as it couldn't fly and was trying to crawl back to the sea.   On a normal day this wouldn't have been a problem but today a gyrfalcon was watching from a short distance and flying over the poor guillemot.  If the reporter from birds.is wouldn�t have been there the falcon would probably not have hesitated in swallowing its meal.  It took the guillemot few minutes to get to the sea where it was safe and the falcon flew away hungry and disappointed.  There will be a good chance to see it again though in the area near the black beach.

A short eared owl is now in the woodlands as fishermen brought it ashore when they found it on the sea, few miles south of Djupivogur.  The owl is well and should have found mice or other delicous meals near the woodlands.
