Melanitta fusca – MOR-HWYADEN GOGLEDD – Winter visitor.
The BTO winter atlas showed that Velvet Scoters were present in two coastal 10km squares during the winters of 1981-82, 1982-82 and 1983-84.
The darker the colour, the higher the relative total count for each 10km square. The darkest blue represents 3-10 birds seen in a day.
They were mostly seen in association with Common Scoters.
