possible eiders off brixham?

Spotted five of these birds off the breakwater at Brixham. I took them to be eiders because of the shape of the bill but having downloaded them on the computer, and looked closer, now not so sure. Also they were diving but Hamlyn's doesn't say they are divers. Could they be scoters?
