Common Scoter

Todays seventeen Common Scoter is the largest flock ever recorded at the mere . There were Eight drakes in March 1996 , then five females and two drakes in October 2012 , and all records before and after those dates have mainly been singles . Below are a couple of my images from todays flock which spent most of the day sitting tight in the middle ,except on the odd occasions when they flew around the mere .
An awesome sight watching seventeen Common Scoters landing on your local patch.
