Red-throated Diver, Peterborough Rowing Lake

This lovely bird, driven inland by the terrible weather ('The Beast from the East') was found on Saturday morning. It seemed healthy, but was occasionally bullied by swans!

Disgiscoped female Stonechat

In general, when digiscoping, if you can see the whiskers near the bill, you know you are doing something right. And with small birds like chats, if you can see the cryptic whiskers (not sure of the technical name) on the nape, you know you are onto a winner! [Click the pics, you will see what I mean]
