River Taw at Fremington Pill outfall

Seen today on rising tide at about 15:30 at the Fremington Pill outfall was this Scaup Tufted hybrid keeping company with five Widgeon. Just down from the pill outfall were two pairs of Goosander.

Eds: Phil this looks to be a female (Greater) Scaup - certainly doesn't appear to be a hybrid.
