The moods of the sea and a weird goose
goldeneye, eider, velvet scoter, a red throated diver and a shag. Only some of them are even in the shots and all of them are too far out to be identifiable in the photos, even if you click to enlarge, sorry, but click on each bird's name and you can find out more.
pinkfoot and of a whitefront, very confusing, possibly its a hybrid, I'm currently trying to get an answer from the experts, but if anyone knows, let me know in the comments. It was hanging out with Canada Geese and greylags (and gulls too!) at Musselburgh.
Edited to add: well it seems that the goose is likely to be a Canada / greylag hybrid!
