Common Eider (Somateria mollissima), another rare visitor for Bulgarian Black Sea coast.

Today, January the 2nd 2012, during a traditional field survey around Durankulak Lake on a very mild and sunny day I observed and photographed a 1st winter Common Eider at 13:35 PM swimming in the sea at about 50 meters from the shore, together with several Pochards, Tufted Ducks, Wigeons, Coots and 2 Red-crested Pochards.
