More Diver


Great Northern Diver on the Welland


This fantastic first winter Great Northern Diver is only the fourth I have seen in the area and the second on the Deeping Highbank. Found by Mike Weedon on Sunday, unfortunately work is full on at the moment so only had an hour window this afternoon. Usually completely un-phased by people (unless stood on top of the bank!) as Divers often are, was great fun predicting where it would next appear. 

Great Northern close up....

Glossy Ibis

This Glossy Ibis was found on the Nene Washes on Tuesday 27th. On Friday it was relocated further along the Nene at Ferry Meadows in Peterborough. Confiding, as Ibis often are; I spent an enjoyable hour or so watching it on the meadow with Mike Weedon and co. This is the third Ibis I have seen in the Peterborough area, after individuals at Maxey GP and Deeping Lakes as long ago as 2014.
