Priorslee Lake - Common Scoter

I dashed like a mad thing back from Notts (if such a thing is possible in the rush hour!) Any Scoter is a good Scoter in Shropshire and after thinking the female Common Scoter was a county year-tick, I realised I'd had one in January at Chelmarsh!

Not exactly bearing comparison with the colourful birds I'd been working with all afternoon but I even got some decent record shots,

another nice find by Reevesy... Well done mate! And 40 mins after I'd left a Sandwich Tern breezed through without stopping for Clive Biddlulph and co! grrrrrr....
