Went over to Crosby Marine Lake at first light on Sunday morning to mainly see if there were any unusual gulls to photograph. However, I got quickly distracted and decided to concentrate on some other birds on the small lake in some very good early morning light.
Started off with some coot which is something I normally overlook but they were lighting up well with the low sun
A cormorant came in to dry off a little
Some Goldeneye caught my eye but the drakes remainded elusive and distant. An immature bird and a female were more accomodating.

and some Tufted duck to finish off an enjoyable morning in some sun for a change.
