The Oystercatcher is here

The Oystercatcher is here already. Two birds were spotted by the river Ölfusá in Selfoss today. They usually arrive around the same time every year and this year is no exception.

Tjaldur – Oystercatcher – Haematopus ostralegus

The Oystercatcher is one of the first migratory birds to arrive,  signalling spring in Iceland. Most go to the British Isles in the autumn and come back in March to April.
