Divers at the Double

Having not seen too many red-throated divers since being in Scotland we were rewarded today with a double sighting of a pair of them.  Firstly a pair took off from a Loch giving us a good view of that weird droopy neck flying style of theirs.  They circled higher and disappeared but another pair put in an appearance from our magic birdwatching balcony this evening!  Sitting serenely in the bay while garrulous gannets plunged in after fish all around them, the divers exuded a regal air, especially with that uptilted bill posture they always adopt.  Too far for a photograph though, but here are a couple more from the last couple of weeks, uploaded now I am back in the computer age!
Hmm, well there were going to be a few photographs but the Wi-fi has reverted to the speed of an asthmatic ant carrying some heavy shopping so just this one will have to do today!  :D

Heather, Hills, and Irn-Bru, I must be in Scotland!
