The eider ducks have arrived

Our friend Juni struggling with some dogs
Since I have neglected my blog for such a long time, the postings come in the totally wrong order. You will have to excuse me for that!

In the beginning of June I went to the dog-yard just outside town. Every year the eider ducks come here to mate and give birth to their little ducklings. They are protected by the dogs from foxes, so they do their thing in reasonable peace, except for photographers like me wanting to see this. If you are lucky you get to see the King Eider, who is pretty seldom. Last year i didn´t, but this year i had the chance. It´s such a colourful male, compared to the others which are black and white.
