An Eider duck Pair  Quite pleased with the captures because I have never seen one before.1136580692_DownyDuck.jpg.ef67b45d9b1ad7399f7f3898e9219418.jpg

Nice set John. Only ever seen in the wild once before - though they do have a number of them at WWT Martin Mere.

Great images! Sharp and clear. Never seen these birds before either. There must be a lot of them somewhere going by the size of the down industry worldwide.  In Victoria, every second person is wearing a down puffer jacket this winter and of course there’d be few people not sleeping under a feather/down Doona.

Thanks all for the comments.  CM, apparently Iceland is the source of much of the down but from what I saw in a recent documentary, it's a bit of a cottage industry so there must be other places.
