Priorslee Flash - 1st winter male Scaup

With the Scoter having scuttled overnight, I joined Martyn Ryder at the Flash with a couple of 1st winter Scaup for company! Here's the male....

Tucked up and resting





But occasionally sparked into action!


I can't remember a more obliging Scaup moment, so here's two more!




The male and female together....


And this one summarises their plumage differences plus size comparison with a Tuftie!


The female to follow!
