Battle Cruiser

If Little Grebe is a fast Naval Launch then Red-throated Diver is the Frigate but the largest of all the battleships has to be the Cruiser – in birding terms the Great Northern Diver. This moulting adult has taken up residence on the Rowing Course at Holme Pierrepont in Nottinghamshire. Also on site were a pair of Smew on the Waterski Pit.

The bird came really close at times, indeed the course is only 100m wide, but I have to thank Jamie MacArthur (hope I got your name right) for the loan of his 600mm lens.
