the lovely eiders ~

I went out a little earlier for my walk this morning. What a beautiful morning it was. The waters were so still, the sun already warm. The eider ducks drew me in with their peaceful morning floating. The group below has two little chicks which they surround and protect.

Further on I came across these two groups who swam towards one another

and then joined together.

Some males got into the mix. I think they are all young ones as you can see their feathers are still coming through.
