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!
