8th May and Eiders

Quick mid week post to keep up the diary element.

Whilst out and about at the beginning of the week I saw a male Eider looking injured and calling "ah-ooo".

I suspected he was trying to distract me and sure enough I spotted this female hiding in the grass nearby. I didn't want to disturb her so the pic is at the full extent of the poor zoom on the compact camera. She is also quite well camouflaged. I won't say exactly where the nest is but I'm sure a certain Moonlander owner can find it.

Still not been out cycling. Swapped saddle on road bike and tightened up brakes to go out this morning but it was too miserable for me. Been raining for the past 24 hrs, a grim May so far.
