Hello, is there anybody out there?

The sight of a 4 x 4 with a 2m wooden shaft and white tupperware box driving round western Iceland has generated some perplexed looks. No, we're not a TV license crew. It's the collar-searching team looking for collared birds from which GPS data can be downloaded. That's been going well with more to do.
A small catch yesterday morning was followed by some reccy further north (Hvalafjordur) and then today even further north to Alftafjordur. A few good ring-reads at Svelsjka, Alftaros and south Myrar, some great WT Eagle views culminating in a spectacular sunset. Departing Brent are now T minus 10-14 days...
