Exclamation Hooded Merganser

(The following feature was spotted by Chris Bell)
There was some interesting photo's taken today by "lapland mull" or Mick or Sylvia Brennan.

If you take a look at these two images on the Teesmouth Bird Club website the bird has an abnormality on it's right leg:

Now last year some of you may well be aware that at Tayport in Fife there was a Hooded Merganser. Now the bird in Fife looks like the same bird that is in Teeside! It you take a look at the image of the bird in Tayport it looks as if it has the same abnormality on the same leg!!!!!!:
