Today was meant to be my appointment with the Don Harlequin but with no new coming out for nearly a week, I opted to make a date with the Ythan's favourite visitor!
Considering I was only there for just over the hour, this post will be split into two parks (sooooo many images to work through!) The King Eider wasn't simply 'there' - as I walked down to the dropping tide at Inches point - it was almost at my feet!! OK I exaggerate but pretty close :-)
It had also taken a shine to the Eider females.....
Looking a little perky to start off with?
A quick wash and brush up!
And then full steam ahead to impress the laydeeez
I'm soooo good looking :-)
But I can be coy?
I'm sexy and I know it!!
And when all the courtship was done, time to crack open a few mussels (coming soon)
