Hey all, Elisa and I enjoyed seeing a raft of approximately 2000 scaup in the James River (Cobham Bay) off Chippokes Plantation State Park in Surry County this afternoon. Due to distance most were left as scaup sp., although a couple small groups flew in close enough to ID as Lesser Scaup. Few ducks other than scaup were present in the raft: a handful each of Ruddy Ducks and Gadwall, 1 Hooded Merganser. At least 4 Lesser Black-backed Gulls scoped from the Park as well.
