Well, the Great Northern Diver hung around at Shustoke reservoir. Not only that, its mate turned up too.
Pete, Dan and I set off on Saturday morning and located one of the Great Northern Divers within 10 mins of our arrival. Result! Love it when it's that easy.
We did eventually see both Great Northern Divers and they happily swan around together showing very well to the birders that had turned out to see them.
Also, on the plus side, a single Common Scoter was located and provided a nice bonus bird.
I am now hoping for some very local Waxwings. Dan had a flock of about 20 today near CO-OP Superstore, Wilnecote. Nice find.
Birdguides have reported some seen briefly in Glascote, I want more.
