My good friend :wink: David Sibley says this about females in winter -
"From about November to May nearly all females can be identified by bill color: on Common the bill is blackish with a small subterminal pale yellow patch; on Barrow’s the bill is mostly bright orange-yellow."
So from the pic one would assume its a Common Goldeneye.
