Scaup in the gloom

One look at the pond this morning and there was no chance we would see the valve tower let alone a common scoter so we cleared off. Just our luck the mist and murk lingered for most of the morning and so had very little on Napton on the Hill while Napton Reservoir produced 3 Shoveler, 4 Gadwall the first female Goldeneye of the winter here, Sparrrowhawk and hundreds of winter thrushes. Popped back to Draycote Water in the afternoon after Bob gave a heads up on two male Scaup he had located when the gloom lifted.
