Northern shoveler

The northern shoveler is a quite rare bird in Iceland but its number have been groving over the last years.  Six male northern shovelers were spotted together at Nyjalon in Djupivogur this week and we have not seen as many males together in this area before.

Rock pipits

Rock pipits were spotted in Papey this week.  This is highly unusual as this is the only known pair of rock pipits in Iceland and assumably they breed there as now is the breeding season.  Rock pipits used to breed on the south coast few years ago but they have disappeared from there.  A shag was also spotted in Papey this week and they are also very rare in this area.  Birds.is haven't got a photo of the rock pipits or the shag yet.
