Spring ducks


Late March is usually a good time for wildfowl..............


And north of Yakumo the ports were again productive...............



There were lots of Black Scoter on the sea but a few were resting in the ports.............




This pair of Long-tailed Ducks was in the same port:

This is the female.........






And here's the male.................





The commonest duck by far is Great Scaup..............


A bit further round the coast there were some Harlequin Ducks..........




Fine spring weather as you can see............most of the snow has melted in town..............a lot more quickly that I thought it would.

  1. The bill of the Black Scoter is really distinctive, huh?
