Long-tailed Ducks, Burghead, Feb '24

I've just returned from our second School of Birding in the Highlands, which was a great success and pleasure - but despite being in the field enjoying a wonderful array of wildlife all day, every day up there, the focus is on our team and the camera very rarely makes it out of the bag. However, with these beauties ridiculously close and in lovely light during our session around Burghead harbour, I had to fire off a few shots.....
... we also had them full-on displaying, which included all manner of comedy muppet noises and some very sharp moves.
