Smallmouth, Portland Harbour
Tuesday October 30th 2018
Common Scoters are indeed commonly seen from view points such as Portland Bill but it is very rare to see one feeding in shallow water. So when one turned up at the southern end of the Rodwell Trail I took the opportunity to film the duck feeding - and drinking!
Several years ago I had a similar encounter witb a Long-tailed Duck at Radipole.
This rare duck spent several days feeding in the channel next to the car park.
