(visited by Henrik Sunden)

28-Jun-2003 -- Visited the confluence on a cycle tour on southeast Iceland. The point is located approximately 750 m uphill from the road along the coast, at an elevation of 87 m. Saw one gannet, one snipe, 2 goose, 2 redshanks while walking up to the confluence point. The vegetation type is grassland and heather with small groups of low birch and willow bushes.

The overview picture is taken from a restored sand pit about 150 meters from the road. The confluence point is in the rightmost of the three gullies.
