Chelmarsh - Red-throated Diver

The only certainty about a long overdue RTD for Shropshire was that Martyn Owen would find it, a superb adult Winter bird too....

Just a shame about the rain and the light but I was absolutely delighted just to see it! I had to wait ages before it threatened to become more than a dot in the scope let alone the viewfinder!

Eventually, the Diver started heading in the right direction!



Ever closer and I could see why this bird had gained a reputation already for being confiding!





Problem was - the light! Never, ever happy am I :-) I can't choose between these so I'll leave them all in.....








My favourite image from the session! Nicely posed.....



I shall be back!
