Little and large Eider Ducks. Eider duck and her duckling in Seahouses Harbour. Strangely the birds wouldn’t come anywhere near my camera on a remote shutter, but as soon as I picked it up they allowed me to get extremely close to them for this wide angle image.
About Eider Ducks:
The Eider Duck is the UK’s largest and heaviest duck and in fact is the largest duck found in the whole of the northern hemisphere. Despite their large size they are also the fastest flying of our native ducks. They are very rarely found far from the coast as they rely heavily on their main food source, molluscs, a dependence which as sadly brought them into conflict with mussel farmers.
