photo taken 11-08-2020at abberton could anyone confirm is this a greater scaup

  • From that front on photo, it's a tufted duck. Any other photos?
  • Hello Margaret, as far as I know there have been no Scaup sighted at Abberton in the last week, plenty of other interesting ducks, Red Crested Pochard, Ruddy Shellduck, Garganey, Goldeneye and lots of diff waders from both causeways. When was your photo taken? I usually see Scaup there around end of & beginning of the year.

    Post edit Just realised you put date in heading

  • Hi

    I think the buird is too narrow in the beam and ther white patch not extensive enough- not a big fan of the nail either :(

    Looks very Tufted to me
