Eider Duck

I photographed these two Eider Duck yesterday just off the promenade in Penzance. The distance and the poor light made photography difficult. New years Eve was a good day for birding and photography, lets hope it is a sign of things to come.


  1. They look pretty good to me! Happy New Year to you and yours. By the way, we have minus 31 degrees this morning. We'll just be staying home in our nice warm house like we always do. Looking forward to blogging with you in 2011.

  2. They look great Sam,we went down today and did well.
    Happy New Year.

  3. Good stuff Sam, I had another look today but light was even worse and they were further out!

  4. Nice Blog Sam/Lisa - Glad New Years Eve was good for you.

    Was a disaster for me , sat in the car for 3 hours waiting for an Eastern Orphean Warbler to show up (as it had done for several days before). It finally showed right at the end of the day in a bush in front of the car !! No pictures :-(

    All part of the fun I guess !!
