This spring three Lesser Yellowlegs have been spotted in Southwest Iceland. Lesser Yellowlegs are rare vagrants and until now only 19 birds had been seen here, most of them in the autumn. Lesser Yellowlegs are breeding birds in North America, and fairly common.
The Pectoral Sandpiper is a more common vagrant in Iceland. It is a breeding bird in North America like the Lesser Yellowlegs.
Two Lesser Yellowlegs and the Pectoral Sandpiper were in Álftanes yesterday evening. The Lesser Yellowlegs is a new bird on my list but the Pectoral Sandpiper was already on the list.
