A young Great Northern Diver appeared at the local Marine Lake on Friday which I was alerted to early Saturday morning by text (many thanks Steve :)), but it was Sunday before I could get out there to try and photograph it. The bird gave really close views for only a couple of minutes during the session and of course during a torrential downpour which saw everyone running to the shelter of their cars.

The bird was doing some fishing and came up with a small crab which was causing it a few moments of difficulty...

Especially as the crab seem to latch on to the birds tongue.
