Brent geese

Today 9 brent geese were in Grunnasund, just outside of Djupivogur.  One of them had a white ring on each leg and it would be interesting to see if someone knows those are Icelandic rings or not.  Eventually the geese took off and headed west, and disappeared.

Red knot

We have had some red knots here this spring.  This one was walking among ringed plovers, purple sandpipers, redshanks, ruddy turnstones, oystercatchers and golden plovers.  This area is ideal for many of those birds as difference between high and low tide is vast and they have plenty of food as the tide leaves a colourful menu for them on the beach.

Common shellducks

Two pairs of common shellducks and a single male are now at the lakes near Djupivogur. They are very easy to see as they are staying near the road. These photos were taken last weekend as they were in search of feed and they seemed to have found something delicious as their heads were constantly down in the water.
