Lonesome Long-tailed Duck swimming with the Goldeneye at Prestonpans

The bitter Westerly wind was slightly more bearable today so I could stand for a little longer on Prestonpans Beach. The Goldeneye that I had seen a few days before were still there, along with a few Eider. Joining them this time was a lonesome female Long-tailed Duck. She was swimming a little further out and so my iPhone / scope combination was having to reach a bit too far for a clear photo. She was diving continuously so was obviously needing to top-up her energy resources.
