Lesser Scaup at Newquay

This first year drake Lesser Scaup was found on Sunday at Newquay Boating Lake.  It's an unlikely location but Steve Rowe will nonetheless be delighted with this find.  Presumably its the same bird relocating from the Bodmin Moor reservoirs.  The shots below were taken early this morning in fairly poor light, thus there is little colour showing in the bird.  The key features such as the dual toned wing bar, small black nail in the bill tip, head shape, head colour and relatively small size can be seen.
