common merganser

(female)

spotted along my estuary walk today. normally ducks always seem in male/female pairs, but fairly sure this was two females diving together.

 

isn't it amazing how far she can lift out of the water just to adjust her wings (or perhaps escape the freezing water, as the air was no picnic either)
