Not dead, only sleeping

I'm alive, just busy, honest.

Here's a colour-ringed Common Eider photo'd today at Newtonhill - he's defending that female to his right against the attentions of all the spotty specky geeky other males. Anyway, his white-over-green left leg identifies him as being ringed on the Ythan estuary as a chick in 1984. Hope I'm still alive and mated up when I'm 26.

Excuse the cropped phone-cam thingy.
