πŸ“– Inchgarth Reservoir ❄️ 1C ~ Wind N ↓ @ 5mph 02/12/21

My first visit to Inchgarth Reservoir on the north bank of the River Dee in Aberdeen after a report of a Black-throated Diver.

Thankfully the bird hung around for a few record shots in the gloom. I was grateful to Ian Broadbent, the Aberdeenshire county recorder who found the bird and was still on site when I arrived. This is Ian's patch and he tells me that this is the first Black-throated Diver at Inchgarth since 1996. A very nice find and thanks to Ian for getting the word out quickly.
