And now, apparent adult drake NORTH AMERICAN BLACK SCOTER off Murcar

An apparent adult drake NORTH AMERICAN BLACK SCOTER was this evening at Murcar. It was in the main scoter flock south of the clubhouse where the White-winged has been frequenting. It was first seen close in at 8pm, then after a minute or so it flew out and joined the main flock. It was then picked out a couple more times up until 9.20 pm (per Nick Littlewood).

There have been no confirmed sightings of the NORTH AMERICAN WHITE-WINGED SCOTER since last Wednesday so it may have drifted north
