Great Northern Diver off St Mary’s

We encountered this wintering Great Northern Diver yesterday on the way back from our pelagic trip.

Around 2500 birds winter in southern Britain each year

A few pairs breed in Scotland

The majority breed by large deep lakes in the Tundra in Iceland, Greenland and North America/Canada
