King Eider

A good day out today with my first tour of the summer – great company, and some top wildlife. Over an hour spent with a fabulously confiding Otter, then cleaned up on the hill with point-blank views of Mountain Hare and Red Grouse. Other notables included Common Scoter, courting Whooper Swans, and some cracking summer-plumaged Red-throated and Great Northern Divers. All good stuff.

Day’s end with a King Eider in the south mainland. Nice.
