    A first for me! A pair of Eider duck in Seahouses harbour:

    Nicely done Russ, there were some youngsters in the harbour when we were there last year. :)

    Many thanks Roger :)
    - these shots were taken in relatively calm harbour waters, whilst the boats to the Farnes were struggling with a very heavy swell outside!

    This third one IMO is the standout one because it shows I surmise some pair bonding behaviour. The other two (and I take the same sort ;) ) are more record shots :)

    The male Eiders are another duck that likes to throw its head back to impress the 'ladies'. :)

    - many thanks B.B. for comments - Record shots the first two are, but you just have to get whatever you can when it’s your first ever sighting in the wild :)
    - many thanks Roger - in fact both male and female were exhibiting the same behaviour on this occasion :)
