Lesser Scaup - Myerscough Quarry, Lancs - 23rd October 2005.

This 2nd, and long overdue, county record of this species, spent the duration of my visit mostly actively feeding in the furthest corner of the main pit. Due to the number of birds also sharing the same corner of the pit, I opted not to get too close and contented myself with videograbs from distance only. Other bird seen included a fem/imm Merlin over.
