    Birds of Bornholm: Common Shelduck

    Off the southern end of Bornholm, which is a Danish island off the southern tip of Sweden, the beaches were loaded with migratory Common Shelducks, which are pretty common in Western Europe:

    I don't think I saw a single breeding male; all were molting males, females, of juvies. Still a cool bird...

    All taken with 60D, 100-400L:

    I like #4 very much. I think you should crop it to remove the upper and lower empty space.
