Common Goldeneye (Bucephala clangula)

In early December last year I posted a photo of a lone female Common Goldeneye (Bucephala clangula). I was lucky to see the male of the species yesterday while walking along the West Bay Walkway. Unlike the other overwintering ducks that move around in flocks or pairs these Goldeneyes seem to be quite content to spend the winter alone.
