He appeared briefly at 3:00pm yesterday (Thursday, December 22) flying over the flats, landing in the trees by the house, and taking off 30 seconds later. Got a couple quick snaps of him in the tree and a poor one as he was being chased by a Peregrine over the water.

Not bad, I drove the entire circumference of Iceland earlier this year with a Gyr - the #1 bird on my life wishlist - as my top priority...found nothing. A pre-Christmas visit to my parents in Ladner for two days? Sure, why not?
