Cosmeston 2nd Jan - Lesser Scaup!

V happy to chance upon an imm drake Lesser Scaup this morning at 11:50. Was still present and being watched at 2 p.m. when I left.
Couple of record shots below.

Light was appalling, with fine drizzle falling.

Further info. Consensus now is that this is a hybrid, albeit a subtle one, which has previously been on Cheddar Reservoir. Look at the lower pic, where you can see the black 'nail' on the bill - it's a bit too pronounced for gen Lesser Scaup.
