Ducks

Journal Entry: Mon Apr 7, 2014, 4:52 AM



It is raining here in the East Neuk today. That doesn't happen as often as you'd think. ;) Today I finally got some photographs of an odd duck who lives near here, as well as an unexpected eider.


This is the duck. It's bigger than the mallards, and I've never seen another of its kind. I'm not sure what type of duck it is. My best guess is a female tufted duck.

I am amazed by all of the birds on the Scottish coast! There's such variety, and I love how the different species coexist. Seagulls tussle while mallards swim past and morning doves waddle nearby. All in the atmosphere of a rainy kirkyard on the water...

My sister norree is offering commissions! They are £8 - £15 per character. Her style is so beautiful, and I always love seeing how she interprets characters. norree.deviantart.com/journal/… Even if you don't want a commission, I'd highly recommend checking out her art! :)

Have a good day, and keep an eye out for birds!
