Scaup – 1894

Fuligula marila – A winter visitor; common.

This is more of a maritime species, and is very rarely met with at any distance from the coast. In general it keeps some little distance out at sea, where it may be met with throughout the winter in large flocks. Sir Hugh Owen sees it commonly off Goodwick. It is hardly worth powder and shot for the table, as the flesh is strong and rank.
