On the patch today - 2 Common Scoter have now joined the Velvet Scoter in West Voe along with 19 Goldeneye.With most of the freshwater lochs frozen over, it wasn't too surprising to find a bit of stuff moving about, 2 Whooper Swans were flying back and for around Scatness for most of the day, in the afternoon 122 Golden Plover headed south and a single Fieldfare appeared in the garden.

Beautiful shots of the swans! I wonder; are these the same thing as our North American Trumpeter Swans?
