American lesser scaup on Isles of Scilly

This video from from Wales says about itself:

Lesser Scaup, Cosmeston, 21 February 2012

This very fine drake Lesser Scaup has been returning to the Cardiff area for a number of years but this was the first time I’d gone for it, calling in on the way back from the Common Yellowthroat. It showed very well for me but the light was awkward and fading fast.

Are round the lesser scaup in this video swim tufted ducks.

From the Rare Bird Network in Britain today, on Twitter:

Scilly: LESSER SCAUP 1 drake today on St. Mary’s. At Lower Moors, for second day.
