Westport Lake 31st Dec

Well after yesterdays failed Scaup viewing I decided to try again today, after being in work for the morning and mainly that was sitting in a dark office due to no power to the site, a well needed stroll was on the cards.

Gemma didn't not seem to keen especially I had to wake her up from her slumber in her car seat but Daddy knows best!

After walking 3/4 away around the lake the target bird was found along with a couple of very horny male Goldeneye who were displaying all the time and even to a probably confused female Pochard (what would you call a duck 1/2 Pochard 1/2 Goldeneye?)

One spot of interesting behaviour I did note is that the Blacked Headed Gulls have taken to mobbing the Coots as the bob to the surface on the hope of nicking a few scraps of food.
