Long-tailed Ducks

After ten days of grey skies and constant gales, we finally got some sunshine! So, a few hours photographing in the harbour produced some fantastic opportunities with Long-tailed Ducks:

...good opps with diving birds:

...and some dapper drake Eiders...

And a very approachable 1st winter Glaucous Gull...

Well these are really lovely images...I love the diving ducks - unusual angle! But those LTD or Old Squaw are so attractive- and that Glaucous - really let you in close!
Great photo's glad you have had some sun - only now (4.30pm)has a blue sky appeared here after long days of grey.
