1st winter male Scaup

Photographed distantly yesterday (20 January) from the road as access is a problem here but interesting to notice the marked difference in plumage of this individual in comparison to the photographs taken on 5 January by DF.
Assuming it is the same bird it is rapidly moulting into adult plumage, it will be interesting to observe how its moult progresses providing it hangs around of course.
