Scaupy






The Ferry Meadows 1st-winter Scaup has been around for nearly three weeks now. He is starting to look more and more like an adult as he moults. He is also getting rather frisky and was in hot pursuit of a female Pochard today...

I have enjoyed viewing your wonderful pictures. Am wondering: are you in England or USA? Am confused, though it doesn't distract from your work, I would love to see some of the places and view the birds for myself.
thank you!

England. Nearly all my photos are taken in and around Peterborough in the English east midlands (the city is now counted as being in northern Cambridgeshire). Thanks for your comments!
