The drake Lesser Scaup was on W lake Cosmeston this morning with a small group of Tufties. Pretty confident it was the bird and not the hybrid Lol & I saw a couple of weeks ago. This had a tiny black bill 'nail' and very flat nape, and a plummy tone to the head rather than the coppery tone and extensive black nail of the hybrid. Also 4 prs of GC Grebes 2 pairs on each lake. A Mistle Thrush was singing by the central path near W paddock.
