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!
