Some ducks in the gloom

Long-tailed Duck

Oshamanbe is the best place locally to see Long-tailed Ducks. This is quite a scarce bird down here and is worth the drive up there………

Lots of Stenjeger’s Scoter offshore but too far off for photos. Black Scoters do however often visit the ports.

The weather was a bit gloomy in the afternoon………..
