Scoter at last

Although I have had to twitch them all, this is nevertheless my third PBC area tick of the autumn, and a very welcome one as this species has slipped from me a few times before. And what I sight they make - a flotilla of 20 female or immature Common Scoter on Gunwade Lake in front of the Watersports carpark at Ferry Meadows. Unfortunately they were gone by lunchtime.

Common Scoter (Melanitta nigra)

Digiscoped with the Nikon CP995, Leica APO77 and 20x eyepiece.
