This one was taken this morning at Hopeman east beach by Allan Adam, an excellent photographer from Elgin. Alan specialises in birds in flight, and here he captured two King Eiders as they were put to flight by the close proximity of a dog walker.
I agree with Zimmie when he says how good Burghead harbour is for close ups of Common Eiders (and on some occasions, the King). Here are a couple of my pics from Burghead from previous visit: the first a male, included here just for comparison with the above (not a great a photo!), and the second a female having a tasty looking snack!
You will see both male and female fairly close in off the harbour wall and promenade toward the golf course at this time of the year.
