Here is my great grandfather in his boat. I forgot to write about why we went to the Westfjords. We are collecting down feather from the nests of these birds for bedding and pillows etc. The bird on the pic does not care about the bird scarers but the birds who eat it's chicks does. They also collect eggs in Iceland. This time of year you can buy eggs from wild birds in your local 10-11 supermarket.

Aha man lär sig något nytt varje dag! Låter som ett tålmodigt jobb att plocka fjädrar.
Snygg skepparkeps ! / God natt!
