Year List update

Just a quick post tonight to update the Year List with a Great Northern Diver that I saw yesterday at Carsington Water. Despite very choppy conditions on the water, it was pretty easy to see as it swam about 20m off Stones Island.

Carsington Water is a regular spot for this species, and this, or another bird, has been present all winter. Here's a photo of one coming into summer plumage that I took back in April 2012.
