    I visited Dozmary Pool yesterday (7th January) at around 4pm and had a distant view of the male lesser scaup feeding on the opposite side of the Pool (typical!) fdiving with tufted ducks and 2 female goldeneye – the light wasn’t great and it was late but I had good scope views – it is now the 3rd Winter I have seen it, first seen in 2010 but not seen in 2012.
