White-Billed Diver at Bardney Lincolnshire

Waited for the fog to go so left at 10.20am
about 2.30 hour drive to Lincolnshire.
The White-billed Diver can do 50m underwater
at a time so waiting down river works most of the time
about a 4 mile walk to start and find others watching the Diver.
Not a new bird for me but to see one so close is a must.
