From a couple of weeks ago at Caelaverock. Good numbers of these wild birds arrived a few days earlier. This Bird is a male in eclipse plumage. The next moult will take the bird into its best looking, top coat!!

Thanks for the votes for my Juvenile Robin - very much appreciated!!

Have a great day

Bill

Great sharp image. I was there on Saturday plenty of Wigeon and large numbers of Teal, winter wildfowl numbers really building up now. There was a male Scaup, also in eclipse, got an image but too distant to put on here.
