I was really pleased to discover this Scaup off Mudbank this morning. It's my first in Exmouth for over three years. I popped out again this evening, just before dark, and it was a little further upriver. It's a female type with prominent white facial patch but so far it has been too distant to see any real detail. I hope it sticks around to give better views. This evening it was briefly alongside a Great Northern Diver and this morning it was alongside a 'new-in' drake Goldeneye. Also off there - 10 Red-breasted Mergansers and 10 Great Crested Grebes. A Cetti's Warbler was in full song from the tiny patch of reeds beneath Lower Halsdon Farm.
