Black-throated Diver, Southend Pier

After many failed attempts at digiscoping this bird on Friday Matt and I went back down the pier to have another crack at it. Five hundred shots and many dives later this is about the best I could do. Nice bird though and a lifer for us both, high five!

The Purple Sandpipers, however, showed well enough to offer solace to an oil painter.
