I walked right passed this one and didn't notice it. The females camouflage is amazing.

Maybe a family group of Eider - male, female & chicks - but the males really do not get involved!

This is on the reservoir on the Isle of May, so this is fresh water.

This Eider was right next to the path at the air receivers. I still didn't notice it the first time I walked passed.
