This seemed to be a common bird in Iceland. At least in the southern part of the island. I could easily get used to hearing its sound in the sky. You hear them long before you see them. To bad I found no video that had teh sound.

  2. Vackra fåglar. De är inte lätta att upptäcka om de sitter stilla.

  6. OK, so in Iceland I can accept invitations to snipe hunt. As long as we're only shooting photographs, that is. Very nice photos!
