Short tailed Long Tailed Ducks!

Very pleasant morning guiding around the Moray Firth, the weather forecast of strong winds could not have been more wrong and I arrived to an almost flat calm waterscape.  Brilliant!

The long tailed ducks are still showing very well in Burghead harbour, light for digiscoping was appalling but got a couple of record shots, the water had a beautiful green tone today which set off the striking plumage of the Long Tailed and Eiders.

Another bonus was the fact that the drakes were displaying with the bugling honking calls of the Long Tailed Males mingling with the Frankie Howerd OOooaa of the Eiders.

Once again great company with Pandora and Laurie (sp) and a fantastic way to spend a Sunday morning.
