Some holiday snaps

With the rest of the family having to be woken up at 10:45 this morning I was able to fit in both birding and photo editing.

The birding front was rather spoilt by overcast skies and a fresh breeze which made searching the fjord rather difficult. A male King Eider in eclipse plumage was the highlight with the vast majority of Velvet Scoters too far out for them to be grilled and therefore no sightings of any of the rare scoters.

Here are a couple of pictures and a video of the Stejneger’s White-winged Scoter from yesterday


And here is a first instalment of photos from the drive up.
