First of all, apologies for the late posting. The Long-tailed Duck (male) previously found among the enormous rafts of mostly Greater Scaups, was seen this afternoon at Ferry Point. I was there around 1pm, joined by my old pal Bill Stubblefield, visiting from Massachusetts, and Berkeley resident, Bill Missing. Surf Scoter numbers were substantial, and the birds were looking brilliant.
