Gavia stellata*

Ah-ha....a Red Throated Diver.

I made a beeline for one of the twitchers this morning and he gave me the gen on what was exciting them all. After looking past the cormorants there it was, a juvenile bird in a dark distant corner, oblivious to the human activity on the dockside.
So I am off out again with the mutt and camera in tow....avoiding the drug dealers whom we bumped into on our first outing to the local shops.

*Before today I'd have said "It's a star system, isn't it?"
