This morning on our way to Loðmundarfjörður in the Eastfjords of Iceland, we spotted a hapless ewe and her lambs in distress, buried in a snowy ditch at the top of the mountain pass between Loðmundarfjörður and Borgarfjörður Eystri. My guide Börkur Hrólfsson pulled off a rescue. Mother and lambs are reported to be doing fine.
See video of the rescue operation below.
Update: This event received coverage in the Icelandic media. See here.
Great trip you have been on with my friend Börkur. You have been to some of the most isolated places in Iceland.
I saw the video on the news the other night. Nice rescue.
A Nat Geo moment !!
