Yesterday I was enjoying spring weather in the home base in Lauttasaari without seeing any incoming migrants.  I got a couple of locals, a crow and  a goosander and noticed that their flying styles are a little different.

The flight of  common merganser is  both strong and fast. There was  enough light to freeze the bird in the picture.
