Velvet Scoter

News of a cracking male Velvet Scoter showing well at Eyebrook lured me over there yesterday morning (may aswell put my new lros membership to good use!) and wasn't disappointed, it wasn't a county tick as I'd seen the Swithland birds last winter but it was much more aesthetically pleasing this time. The bird showed unbelievably well, close to the fishing lodge - even being obscured by marginal vegetation at times.
