Scaup 10th Feb

Another day, another good local bird. This first-winter drake Scaup was on CEGB Reservoir, Peterborough this evening - excuse the awful shots taken in the last of today's light. It's the second I've found in the area this winter, following a young female at the end of November.

The gull roost was quite impressive tonight and included 1,200+ large. An adult Caspian and first-winter Yellow-legged were seen, although no white wings. Which, in such a winter, I find quite amazing.
