Thread: Common Scoter?

    Common Scoter?

    Out this morning in a rather blustery Perthshire, I reckon I saw a Common Scoter on one of the ponds. Never saw any deer right enough!
    What do the sages on this forum think? Is that likely? I have looked in the birdy books and that seems to be the best bet.

    I didn't twig the orange flash on the beak. All I saw was a black duck. I imagine it is living on that pond. I'll go back and have a look sometime. Is it/was it a quarry species?
    Thanks for your input.
