Greater Scaup…

A flock of seven Greater Scaup where present on the marine lake at West Kirby this morning, along with several Brent Geese (ssp. hrota), Red-breasted Merganser and a single Great crested Grebe. The flock consists of four drakes and three hens, which given their status of a scarce coastal visitor to Wirral & Cheshire, I popped down during my lunch break at college.
