Thanks Rob, that helps. As you may have heard the Cardiff Bay Lesser Scaup appeared at Llanishen Res for a few hours one day in early May, but it took me more than an hour of watching it to see enough to convince myself I wasn't looking at a hybrid. No luck for me in the bay yesterday.

For pictures of the hybrid and the right bird at Cosmeston approach Andy Burns who has submitted both for the bird report for last year. The main differences being the bill nail - head shape/colour and mantle - this hybrid does not seem to have any Lesser Scaup in it?

Phil ! the bird is usually found in the dock by the red bridge by the Dr Who exhibition .

Thanks Rob...Doh!
