Great Northern Diver, about to make a very late dive to avoid the New year's day Jet-skiers
Back in my home town, a Great Northern Diver has been
hanging around Ashbyville Lake for a week or so now. Despite the
steelworks backdrop and lakeside jet-skiers narrowly missing squashing it, the
bird seems in no rush to move on, much to the admiration of many
visiting birders, myself included.
