Hi all, have a few questions regarding some birds I saw off Selsey Bill yesterday. The 2 videos are pretty poor so I kinda expect they can't be ID'd beyond 'Diver sp.', but just wanted to check if there were any ID features present I'd missed! The only IDable diver I saw was a (much closer in) Great Northern.

Video 1: 1 diver,
Video 2: 3 divers,

Photo: I believe these are red-breasted mergansers?

Agree on the mergs, they recorded 5 Red throated Divers west between 07.30 and 10.00 yesterday, to my trained but out of practice eye the single bird looks OK for RTD, Youtube seems to want to show me relaxing Jazz instead of your other videos 😮
