|Surf Scoter (Vancouver Island 2010)|
On Saturday 28th February 2015 I caught up with a bird I haven't seen since living on Vancouver Island - Surf Scoter! I couldn't resist a quick twitch to Gosport in Hampshire to add this North American diving duck to my British List. The weather was less the favorable with rain, wind, distance and light being against me. I did get scope views and a flight view but no photos. I made a quick stop on the way out and checked out the Brent flock for a rarer Black Brant but no luck.
