Wetland restoration

In Hellisskógur by Selfoss there is a little pond in the wood where wetland has been restored.

Óðinshani – Red-Necked Phalarope – Phalaropus lobatus

In the last four weeks a few Red-Necked Phalaropes have been on the pond feeling at home it seems . The Phalaropes’ nests are well hidden in the dense vegetation and difficult to find so whether they have bred and nested by the pond remains to be seen. Hopefully their chicks will appear on the water in the next couple of weeks.
