#44 (IOM 27) Long-tailed Duck (Clangula hyemalis)

This was actually a lifer for me

I'd love to have seen it.

#49 (IOM 33)

Herring Gull (Larus Argentatus)

I always struggle with the English name of this bird:rolleyes: 

The scientific name translates as Silver gull which is also the Danish/German name!

#54 (IOM 38) Great Cormorant (Phalacrocorac carbo)

Much closer to home in one of the small lakes on the estate.

Notice the Oystercatchers at the top right corner. Looks like they are ready to nest. They will be part of the collection later in the year.
