Bee-eater and American Black Duck

European Bee-eater – photo by Turið Vestergaard

Yesterday Gudmundur Danberg found a European Bee-eater at Vági. It’s the 3rd national record. Turið Vestergaard managed to relocated the bird today and obtained some nice photos.

Today I went on a family trip to Saksun. At the lagoon I found an American Black Duck. As I only brought my bins and cellphone I didn’t get good photos, but wing-pattern looked spot on. Probably even a new bird compared to the earlier bird at Eiði, as I didn’t see any white on the back of the mirror. I’ll have a look for it tomorrow.
