Easter spring the air is bright and the sea is glittering. I was down by the seashore today when I heard a peculiar sound like sirens. I gazed at the face of the sea that waved like a voile of a million twinkling stars. It made me dizzy, but then I discovered a group of large ducks performing some ecstatic movements while making that siren sound They were 5 black and white birds surrounding a rather grey brown duck. And I realized it was Ærfulglen sin parringslek jeg så. Eider. Somateria molissima.
They are fabulous divers and are sometimes dissipears for more then a minute.
As my eye sight sharpened I discovered more colours on the male birds, apart from the jetblack there was a delicate pink and a soft yellow and an emerald green like painted on the the brightest of whites.
Quite a sight!!!
