What Great Northern Divers do

1. Swim about a bit.

2. Do some 'snorkelling'.

3. Splash!

4. Going...

5. Gone!

6. Resurface.

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

  1. This is great! Neat to see what it does in steps like this. Did you notice in the head-on shots (to me anyway) it looks like it has lips instead of a beak? Pretty neat :)
