Lesser Scaup at Eglwys Nunydd Reservoir

A first winter female Lesser Scaup was a great find by Eddie Hunter and Dominic Davidson at Eglwys today. Eddie saw this bird a few days earlier and today managed to sure up the id. On occasions it was hanging out with male and female Greater Scaup providing great comparison. Below is one of Eddie's photos showing the Lesser Scaup together with Greater Scaup and Tufted Duck females - what a brilliant shot!!!

Nice one Eddie. Fantastic shot. If I get to see a scene like that tomorrow I'll be very happy.
