Great Northern Divers & Eider at Newlyn harbour. 7th Jan 2020.


Great Northern Diver


A visit down to Newlyn today in misty & murky weather yielded good views of 4 Great Northern Divers... aka Common Loon to my North American friends.

They seemed to be feeding well on Cornish crab & shrimps!

I also got to see the long staying winter plumaged Black Guillemot from a distance but failed to get close to it with my camera!

Better behaved was the drake Eider which was looking fantastic.
