Lookout point

The landscape in some places in Iceland, especially where it’s fairly level and there aren’t many really high points, is dotted with what look like tussocks of grass that protrude up from what high points there are, e.g. hummocks. These are lookout points on which birds have been perching and pooping for so long that they have little by little risen above the surroundings. The higher they get, the more popular they become as lookout points, and the more popular they become, the faster they rise. They tend to be conical in shape, but this unusual example is cylindrical and looks like a small grassy tower.
Unfortunately the bird flew before I could snap a photo.
