Diver Racing

It’s a new sport. Diver Racing.

There we were looking out to sea when a diver popped up in from of us. This was not the usual North Norfolk up-tilted bill pale faced Red-throated. This was a piebald bird with a symmetrical bill and a stonking great white flank patch. It was a Black throated Diver.

We walked down the shingle to get a closer look and the diver did what divers do … and dived. It came up a hundred metres further along the beach. We walked towards it and it dived again coming up a hundred metres away again. Each time we tried to get closer it moved on. We were racing it up the shingle beach.

The picture below is taken at a distance of … you guessed it … one hundred metres.
