Hi everyone! Precious little today as I'm out of it completely with flu!!
The Canvasbak was seen first thing in the morning by Andy Schofield ,and for the first time in flight! He described it as "massive" set against the accompanying Greater Scaup, which goes some way towards dispelling concerns about its size. Jim Dixon from Argyll mainland is coming across tomoorrow to try and get some pictures of the bird, which will hopefully resolve any nagging doubts we have about it being any sort of hybrid, even showing minimum signs. Lets hope the conditions are kinder than these last few days.
