15/12/07 - First self-found inland waters Diver!

At Crosby Marine Lakes i found my First self-found inland waters Diver, and even though it was only of couple meters away from the Sea, it gave great views and i was pleased to find it, even if it was the commonest Diver - a Red throated diver. A few more pics of this Day are on my Blog.

Also if anyone wanted to know a good place for Finches in Lancs/Greater Manchester. Try Pearson's flash at Wigan. It is amazing, just on one of the paths caught up with 1 Fem Brambling, 30+ Lesser redpoll, 10+ Siskin, 50+ Goldfinch, 20+ Chaffinch, a couple Greenfinch and 2 Bullfinch. 7 Species of Finch!!! Plus they all showed incredibly and all at the same time as standing next to c5 close up Goldeneye.

Nice find, Nick. Quite a good record to have a diver on the marina, even though it is so close to the sea! Might pop in and have a look tomorrow if I've got nothing better to do (was still there this afternoon, apparently).
