Juvenile Great Northern Diver ........ Pitsford Reservoir.

This bird resided for a considerable amount of time at Pitsford Reservoir earlier in the year, very much at home and enjoying with relish the stocks of fish that the reservoir had to offer.

This was quite a confiding individual however the species has a very interesting response to being a bit too much in the spotlight, it has the capacity to semi-submerge its body to reduce its body profile and will sink its neck and head to the surface of the water.

I hope it comes back as an adult !.
