Heard about the Great Northern Diver on Southport's Marine Lake this afternoon, so headed up to have a look with the last few minutes of light (at about 1530!!).
The bird was fishing away at the north end of the lake, typically disappearing beneath the chop for long periods of time, before rising submarine-like onto the surface for a few short moments _ marginally easier to take blurry shots of than the Long Tailed Duck at Junction Pool.
Hopefully it'll still be about tomorrow - when it may be easier to admire in better light.
The last one on the lake millions of years ago came quite close as I remember...
Male Goldeneye on there too this afternoon, but bitterly cold and I wimped off home before any egrets started appearing.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
