Lesser Scaup: With autumn the changing winds bring with it American migrants, like this diving duck that migrates across the pond.
In America it is colloquially known as the Little Bluebill or Broadbill because of its distinctive blue bill.
This bird has taken up residence at Pennington Flash and has been showing incredibly well due to its appetite for bread.
I am assured its not an escapee, no ring! And people were telling me this behavior is not all that unusual, someone even told me they were feeding Goosander bread the other week.
