Scaup Still

 Greenfinch - one of c10+ feeding on blackberries at Mudbank yesterday.
The Scaup still present this evening. It likes the stretch of water just north of Mudbank and south of West Lodge. I didn't really count stuff in the limited time I had after work this evening, but yesterday I recorded 20+ Red-breasted Mergansers, the female-type Scaup, 2+ Goldeneyes, 1 Peregrine, 33+ Grey Plovers, 1 Knot, 2 Ringed Plovers, c120+ Turnstones, c2/300+ Dunlin, c40+ Redshank and a Chiffchaff.
First thing yesterday morning I had 2 Great Northern Divers off Maer Rocks and 2 distant small ducks that looked like Long-tailed Ducks. Too distant to be 100% sure though.

One of at least 33 Grey Plovers off Mudbank yesterday afternoon. A good count for Mudbank. They're usually miles out in the estuary so it was lovely to see them up close.
