Doomed Diver?

Arty, the Red-throated Diver, is still hanging on at Deeping Highbank. It's become loyal to around Crowland Bridge, worryingly close to where most people fish. Also worrying, it's leg doesn't appear to have got any better and looks to be broken. Spending huge amounts of times snoozing next to the bank and often drifting rather than swimming, the future doesn't look particularly bright for this individual. As the last photo illustrates, I enjoyed a quality encounter and at times it approached me down to five metres or less.
