This is my first sighting of the Common Merganser. According to the Merlin Bird ID App, it is classed as a rare sighting around here. I love the name of the bird too.

If at the Lake, where are you shooting from?

I've never seen this species even though even though it's so close to home. I am a little embarrassed I've missed it!

She has been there for a few years now. At least five that I am aware of.
