I've seen a few before on the Loch, bobbing amongst the Tufted Ducks, but never the 50+ numbers I counted today.
They were congregated near the Boat House marina, with a Goldeneye spotted among them, its golden gaze standing out.
Further round the loch, a family of Mute Swans floated past, silhouetted against the backdrop of a golden sunrise.
