I recorded this Loon at Qingdao, Shandong province on Monday, first I thought it is a Black-throated Loon with some oil。 After exported photos, it has black neck and upwards bill, so is it a first winter Red-throated Loon with much juv plumages?
Thank you.

Precisely that xuky, a moulting juvenile/1st-w Red-throated.
