The Redshank in its orange stockings

Stelkur – Redshank – Tringa totanus

With its bright orange feet the Redshank stands out and makes it easy to spot. It is usually a migratory bird in Iceland but a few stay for the winter. The Redshank is a wader and can be seen throughout the country, mostly near lakes and streams, and of course by the seaside. – We have to wait until April to hear the shrill call of the Redshank again.
