Scaup And Scarper !

Seems we have a new visitor in the river today. Thought it was a Tufted duck at first, but now think it may be a Scaup.

Broad bill, and no sign of a tuft on the head, appears to be tagging along with the ducks.

Other news this week, includes one of the big cygnets having been chased off by Penny and Duke. It has tried to come back a few times but gets chased away again.

Was one of the large males, perhaps has been too dominant and Penny decided it was time for him to go. 

This is not the first time she has done this, sometimes the potential pairing within the family causes Penny to take action. This particular male was very dominant.
