Common Eider (Somateria mollissima) / 14.08.2015
These two female Common Eider (Somateria mollissima) are the first Eiders I have ever seen. At first I looked at them and thought they were unusual looking ducks :) But after a few seconds I realized they were Eiders! What a great surprise it was to spot them. My friends and I were stopping just for a minute to get a coffee to take away while on the road to Loch Lomond. Birding opportunities are everywhere!
Not baited. Not called in.
