Saw these from the shore at Skipness just as Kilbrannan Sound becomes Loch Fyne, looking East towards Bute, last Saturday (31st October). I'm thinking winter plumage black-throated divers, but five at once? Can anyone help me please?
Interestingly, whereas these BTs are in full winter plumage, I saw GNs from the Kennacraig to Islay ferry just a couple of days previously, which were in full Summer plumage still. (See new photo post)
Although my BT Divers were in winter plumage, this GN Diver is obviously in Summer plumage and that's in the last week of October! Seen from ferry between Ardrossen and Brodick (not on the Islay ferry as i reported earlier).
