Venus Pool - Scaup trio!!

Martyn Owen picked out three Scaup on the adjacent fishing pool this lunchtime. Problem was, all they wanted to do was sleep!

Even with their heads tucked under, flashes of the striking white patch at the bill base was occasionally obvious. The head shape, pale cheek patch, bill and plumage, all characteristic of Scaup......

The adult female atually 'untucked' for a second or two - blink and you would have missed it though......

Before dozing off again!
