Great Northern Diver in Scunthorpe

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.
