Gawp @ Scaup! Beccles Quay dash...

Scaup are, of course, seaducks: it's very unusual to see them close-up, never mind well inland! This couple (presumably females, one immature) have been hanging around Beccles Quay for a few days, allowing ridiculously good views! Needless to say, I disrupted my work agenda to go and have a look! They took a few minutes to put in an appearance before swimming off into town...

I stopped at Haddiscoe on the way home, parking under the bridge and walking about four miles along the concrete road and back. Distant views of several Marshies, a Common Buzzard and a Rough-leg: the only reasonable shot was one of several Stonechat I came across.
