While at Elton reservoir in Bury recently there was a Scaup on the water. This wasn't my primary target here, but it was nice to add to the year list all the same.
It was spending it's time alone at the far end of the reservoir, with just a male Pochard for company. Both were diving frequently and seemed to spend more time under the water than above it.
That's a new one on me.ReplyDelete
