I ran inside to get my camera, and they were gone by the time I was back outside. I am convinced they did that to me on purpose, just to frustrate me a bit more.

Birds do that to me all the time. vmad

This is the Great Northern Diver at Sharpness in Gloucester. I was reading some facts about these birds and it surprised me to read that there are records of these birds living for over 30 years and historic evidence suggests that the Great Northern Divers have been around for at least 20,000,000 years, making them the oldest and most primitive example of a bird alive today.

Just look at that eye and bill apparently When attacked or when defending their young Great Northern Divers have been known to rush their attackers in an attempt to impale them.

I don't fancy being impaled by that serious bit of kit at the end of it's head.-?

I only get to see them in living colour, although I'm sure late fall I could possibly find something in winter feather. I'm going to have to make the effort.

That is one sharp shot! People think that mallards are boring, not when they look like this. :)
Very nice!
