|A winter plumage Great Northern Diver|
We were joined by Dave Pritchard from Cardiff who was searching for the same bird. He did find a winter plumage Great Northern Diver way out on the Burry Inlet as an early compensation. Finally I was getting cold and decided to leave. I got 400 yards back from Dave and decided to have one last look. Wow! there it was a superb adult male Long-tailed Duck. Resplendant with long tail streamers and almost in complete winter plumage. I bellowed down the beach and Dave came running. We relocated this splendid duck and I retired home very content indeed.
