Black Velvet

Ahead of The Drunkbirder Christmas Curry, Minnie Mu and I headed over to Eyebrook Reservoir to see the stunning male Velvet Scoter that was supposedly coming in so close… well today it didn’t. Despite good light it stayed at the far end of the dam and even then with a closer approach it stayed too far away for the DSLR.

All I managed were some pretty poor digiscoped shots and a bit if iPhonescoped video.
