Greater Scaup: I've not seen one of these for what seems like a long time, so it was great that these birds hung around for a week or so and showed pretty well. Happy days.

There were seven scaup in total on the lake, including four drake and three female of which five of then stayed out in the middle of the lake.
Two drakes were brave enough to come a little closer and came down to at least 5 feet, foraging for crabs in the shallower water.

Great to bump in to John Tymon,  Karl Bishop and Andy Ingham.
