|Drake Long-tailed Ducks, Burghead, Moray 28 February 2012.|
We spent a couple of hours at Burghead (Moray) the other day, and were delighted to find 30+ Long-tailed Ducks close inshore. Most were drakes, one group of ten courting a single duck quite vociferously!
Nothing untoward out there as far as I could see, but there were at least 50 Common Scoters, 30 Eiders, a few Goldeneyes and several Red-throated Divers. A few Pink-feet could be seen in flight but the only grounded birds I've found over the the last few days was a flock of 350+ near Nairn. No Beans though.
