This 2nd winter bird has been hanging around the ferry landing stage for a few weeks now and is well worth a visit to see, it's a stunner.
Also note the 2nd Winter birds eye colour, which is brighter than the 1st winter birds iris that are typically darker.
Goosander: After I got my fill of the Iceland Gull I turned my attention to the other birds on the lake where amongst the usual suspects was this red-head Goosander.
This bird seemed to have taken a fancy to steeling bread from the other birds and wasn't shy about it, as on several occasions came right up to my feet, on the waters edge.
In the end Dawn, Yogi and I had a really nice day, a lovely walk, some questionable food but were thrilled to see such a great gull up close and personal.
