Goosander, Loch Leven

I'm not sure if it's "Goosander" plural or "Goosanders", either way there were a lot of them on Loch Leven this morning!

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.
