For many years the golden plover has been our herald of spring. In a well known Icelandic poem the golden plover sings away the snow and melancholy of winter. The golden plover has often been a subject of adoration for Icelandic poets. It migrates to Iceland and the first ones are often seen at the end of March or the beginning of April. At first, it keeps to the shoreline and estuaries but the favorite habitat of the golden plover is rough pasture and heathland where it nests.
