Scaups at Thornton

Although there was no sign of the Scaup this a.m. when I went to look at the gull roost at 3.30 , two juvenile Scaup were present, feeding in the central area of the res. Very few Scaup have been rung in the U.K. but those that have demonstrate a strong link to Iceland. (Migration atlas). The flock of Lapwing is also increasing with about 50 birds on the dam and a fly over flock of about 100.
