Red Throated Diver

March 19th 2010.

A Red Throated Diver up nice and close in the harbour at Kamiiso 3 years ago today. These occasionally visit harbours when they are sick or injured but this one seemed to look OK......................

  1. Great portrait - last time I saw one anything like close enough for a shot it dived and I never saw it again.

  9. Great picture - nice to see them close in. I was used to seeing them at distance, though a scope!

    I like the water on the back of this bird.

    Cheers and thanks for linking to WBW.

  11. They have to be poorly to get a shot like that after they usually turn up on the ornamental lakes at St Annnes or Fleetwood. Otherwise its distant views out on the sea.
