Subject: [VTBIRD] Surprise mix of ducks in E Dorset
What a surprise mix of ducks on nearby pond in E. Dorset. A kayaker put in
this very small pond for a very quick paddle just as I arrived.
Fortunately, I was able to do a bino scan before most ducks left and able
to photograph the remaining. Strange mix - esp the scoter.
