No: Siland, En: Red-breasted Merganser, It: Smergo minore
I went to Herdla island outside Bergen in the end of October. All vaders were gone, but there were many different ducks and geese. However, for aestetic reasons the main photo of the month is the Merganser in breeding plumage from Loch Morar in April. Compare with the eclipse plumage of October at Herdla (last photo).
