Semipalmated Sandpiper one of three i found this year at Reykjanes peninsula







Well of course i started my day as go to Sólbrekka to check the Status of the Feeding spots and put out some seeds


after that i take my daily route around Reykjanes shorter ring as i call it but i also have the eykjanes Longer ring which i take once in week at this time but daily in the Spring and Autumn when i can poss find some vagrants and that a rare one


As always i Start going from Sólbrekka to Hafnir trough Stapafells road,, Hafnir is small town Located as the most Western part of Reykjanes known for its beautiful old Church and the Ósabotnar a small fjord full of life in this time of year mostly Ducks and Seabirds but in Spring lot of Waders.

From there i go to Thorshofn a small creek on the way from Hafnir to Sandgerdi there you can see some Divers and Eiders and other ducks and next stop is Sandgerđi where i look over the two Sandy Beaches which are there and keep waders all year long and lot of Gulls

the it is Garđur and Garđskagi famous fro the Lighthouses and a good spot for Northern Lights there is nice coastline and there has lot of rare birds been found trough the years :)

from there i go to Helguvík where i can find a Kingeiders and Cormorant in the new year and all the Gulls species of Iceland at one point and finally i end up in Keflavík where i look for the White Winged Scoter and then i go to Fitjar close by on the Coast line to look at Waders and other nice birds

on all those places Gyrfalcon can been seen in the Wintertime
