Shetland Gt Northern Diver

Great Northern Divers are fairly common in Shetland throughout the winter and a few stay all summer, these are non- breeders

There are still several birds in the south mainland in different plumages

This diver was even calling, the first I have heard in Shetland

The one below is now in full breeding plumage a magnificent bird

They dive for longer than Red throated Divers and can re appear along distance away
