 Velvet Scoter, adult drake. Eyebrook reservoir, Rutland. Kept close to a tower near the dam wall. It dived frequently and seemed to find plenty of food before swimming out to open water where it tucked bill into scapulars and slept.

Wings held outside flank feathers directly before diving for food.
