What Great Northern Divers do
1. Swim about a bit.
2. Do some 'snorkelling'.
Repeat ad infinitum.
Didn't see it actually eating anything...
If you have broadband and want biiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiggggg pictures, then Weedon Gallery can service your every need.
A juvenile/first-winter bird found on the River Welland at Crowland by Garry Heath yesterday afternoon. By the time news got out, it was too dark so WeedWorld and I were onsite by 7am, ready to get our hat-trick of PBC area divers (tick no. 196 for me). Good job it was still there, even managing to hold its own against a scary-looking pair of Great Crested Grebes.
Now everybody that wants them has a set of amazingly similar digiscoped (or digital SLR-d, in some cases) GND photos. I took about 180, and have deleted most of them.
photos taken with Nikon Coolpix 995 + Leica Apo Televid 62 with 16x eyepiece
