Lesser Scaup

This morning Andy Bond and myself made the trip down to the Lower Tamar Lake to look for Willow Tit and we managed to see 2 of them by the hide and that pleased Andy as he had not seen them for a few years . Also seen coming to the feeders were European Blue Tit , Great Tit , Coal Tit  Marsh Tit , and my first Eurasian Treecreeper of the year .
We then headed for Dozmary Pool on Bodmin Moor in Cornwall . But when we got there the mist was very bad and we could just about make out some Common Pochard , Common Goldeneye , Tufted Duck and Little Grebe but there was no sign of the male Lesser Scaup the bird that we had came for , so we decided to heads for home . But Andy had a feeling that it was still there somewhere so we went back for one last look and as luck would have it Andy found the bird on the far end of the pool and saved the day ........well done mate !
