Looking for more colours in Innri Njarðvík

Dear friends in Poland and Spain!

We went looking for colours again! Now the pond being so blue the other day was grey? Why is that? Is it because it was windy or are there maybe big fishes in the pond making it all grey?

***

We also found some more of our “rustred colour” and some green. Look at the colours of the worm this time!

***

We also found this artwork made by the children in the elementary school in Innri Njarðvík, Akurskóli. A lot of colours and many different kind of animals!

Looking for colours in Innri Njarðvík!

Hello!

We have been looking for colours in nature now for some time and see what we found…these look somewhat similiar. But wait…do both these items belong under the category nature? We are not sure, what do you think?

____________________________________________

We are having the same problem with the colour red. This is what we found but….

_________________________________________________

Looking for yellow was fun. We were so pleased to find the exact same flower as you have in Poland! We encountered some issues here as well but perhaps you could advise us on the matter. For example we are wondering wether the flowers on the same picture are both dandelions at different stages? We also advise you to take a close look at the worm to see the yellow spot!

Brown….

Now to the colours of Spain. Starting out with blue as the sea, ponds, the sky and some flowers as well.

____________________________________________________

We have not found much yet in this category. Is this flower purple?

Golden brown

We could not resist learning some more about bees and tasting some honey…it was sweet!

At last green as the gras and some “hundasúrur” that you can eat. They are sour.

You saw the egg of the seagull that Hulda Maria brought us. As you can see it is a little bigger than an egg of a hen. We were curious to see what would be inside but it did not look much different from the egg of a hen except for the eggyolk being more orange. The other day Ólöf Eva brought us egg  of patridges to taste. They were so tiny and somehow soft. But they were good! Exploring all these different egg made us curious to see an egg hatch. We found some trails on youtube and look at that….

Colourful nature – in Iceland

Dear friends in Spain in Polland. We went outside to see what colours we could find outside. Here are the three colours we choosed to present to you. Many of the colours that we found remind us actually of last month’s topic. Let us see if we can find other things as well. We are wondering where you can find these colours  in the nature of your country?

Grey as the feathers of a seagull

White as this bone

Well whatever colour this is?

The  orange, rustred, brownish kind of colour of this stone?

Why do think the colour of the stone is like this?

Oystercatcher – find out more

The oystercatcher is called Tjaldur in Icelandic. The bird dwells in Iceland in summertime but also  the whole year around in some places. If the oystercatcher does not dwell here in the winter it flies to warmer countries. Maybe to Spain or Poland, do you know? The green colour indicates that the Ostercatcher stays there the whole year. The yellow colour indicates that it is staying there only during summer and the blue colour only during wintertime.

The oystercatcher eat worms, buggs and of course oysters which look like this.

We tried to find out how big the bird would be comparing to us. It would be this big about 40-45 cm.

The distance between the two wings spread out would be a little less than between the fingertips of Katrin Alda or 80 to 85 cm.

IMG_2291

The egg is almost the same size as the egg of a hen or 5.5 cm. They usually hatch 3 or 4 egg.

This is what the birds looks like.
