a big reservoir 'with' one bird on it

3 meadow pipits and 2 carrion crows were all i saw on the walk to the res,as usual the 'with' throws up it usual curve ball,on the res a black dot,a duck,a quick look through the bins reveals a drake common scoter,nice one.
in the last 3 years this is the 3rd record totaling 41 birds now,so on paper it is the commonest duck up here!!!

THere are birding photos and then there are these wonderful atmospheric Darrel shots, that make everyone want to be there, hiding behind a bush.
