October Harlequins


Every October the Harlequin Ducks return to the coast..............


They must ne moulting, they sit around on rocks (or concrete tetrapods like these ones) but swim away as soon as you approach..............

Sometimes they are in shadow...............


And sometimes they aren't.....................
