While scanning the flocks of ducks again I was told that the Scaup was up in the centre of the south lake so I went up to have a look it took a bit of searching but I found it but it kept diving so it it a very hard duck to find and with out the information given I mostl likely would of past it of as a female type tufted.
Went back on Sunday for a quick walk round the lake with my son and had a wonderful view of a drake Pintail with a good number of Teal in one of the flooded pools on Hampreston meadows
a Med Gull and two Stonechats.
