Common Scoter: I've seen thousands of Scoter off shore and half a dozen in some local lakes like Pennington Flash and Elton Reservoir, but I have never seen a Scoter showing this well before.
The bird then settled on the lake and drifted towards the outflow and down on to the stream.
Another empty net!
The chase was finally over.
With lightning reflexes the Scoter dove under water again but this time swam right in to the RSPCA's well placed net.
