Because they are so often seen , I suspect ducks are often under rated as 'spots'. At this time of year it can be fascinating to watch their interaction as the testosterone starts to kick in. (do birds have testosterone?????)

A strumpet strutting her stuff on the River Thurso today. I thought she was a good bit paler then most and all the finer for that!


What lady could resist him?

Enjoyed the pics grumphippo looks like the female has some Aylesbury in her make up, pardon my pun, don't think she would be using powder!
The Eiders had us entranced when we were up a few weeks back espcially the male's water ballet and the wonderful deep sexy call, for a moment I thought my luck was in until I realised it was them.

The Eider Ducks make very obliging subjects at Scrabster Harbour, here's a photo taken recently.
