Siberian White-winged Scoter

A montage of videograbs of this first for Ireland. The jury is still out on which subspecies it is although our personal notes and recollections would suggest stejnegeri as the more likely candidate; but hopefully that will be confirmed in the next few days with further, more educated views.

Update 11/3: most opinion seems to be settled on Stejneger's Scoter.

Thanks for all the kind words; full credit to Davey Farrar for initially locating this bird!
