Flying Scaup | Joel Walley Wildlife Photography
A wintering Scaup (Aythya marila) flying close to the water at RSPB Valley Wetlands on the Isle of Anglesey. The Scaup is a red list species in the UK with less than five pairs breeding here each year. Most of the individuals, like the one in this photograph, come from the continent and spend the winter here.
