Red Throated Diver

When I think of Red Throated Divers, I always think of Loch Spiggie on the Shetland Island of Fetlar.

Fetlar is a special place.  Snowy Owls have nested there, and it is one of the few places in Britain where you can see Red Necked Phalaropes.

One morning I arrived early on Fetlar and made my way to Lock Spiggie.  The sun was fighting a heavy sea fret which was swirling around the Loch.  Two Red Throated Divers were calling somewhere on the Loch, a sort of booming call, but the birds could not be seen due to the mist.

Suddenly there was a shaft of sunlight which gave a passing glimpse of two of these iconic birds.  A magnificent moment.  A moment to cherish.
