My body is a temple. I'm busy building a double storey extension.

Edit: Interesting how the colour of the bill of the "Big Diver/Loon" changes depending where you are or what language you speek... I ment WHITE-billed Diver (vs. Yellow-billed Loon; in Germany the colour is also "yellow"... Gelbschnabeltaucher)
Varanger is planned for later in the year, I guess they have their reason for that, eventhough I'd do it differently.
About the names: Yellow-billed Loon is actually right here, since they are using IOC nomenclature
