... I would like to post an observation from last Saturday when I saw a
creche of eider ducklings on Cape Ann. There were about 15 ducklings in
the charge of 4 adult females. Ducklings looked to be about 3-5 days old
and they were at Emerson Point area, specifically where Penzance Road
meets the sea. May well be from breeding sites out on Thatcher Island.
So far as I am aware (and could be wrong, as usual) they are not a
common breeder in this part of Ma.

Many thanks
