Lesser Scaup

Birsay Bay on the evening 29th

A trip east to see the Lesser Scaup on Ayre's Loch. Not ideal conditions and it took two hours or so to nail the tricky quacker. This individual is much less clear cut than the 2010 bird. However, eventually the full suite of features were revealed, including the diagnostic wing pattern. Distant record shot only.
