Great Northern Diver (Loon)

We decided to walk the dog in a woods near Marazion today along with my son and his family. On the way we stopped of at Longrock pool and noticed the Great Northern Diver. I had left camera at home and only took the Binoculars which is typical of me. I gave Steve Rogers a text as I new he was looking for it yesterday and had no luck. On the way back from our walk I stopped off to see Steve and John Rowe, only to find the GN Diver right under their noses. I had to go home and get my gear to photograph this superb adult in summer plumage. Unfortunately the light was worse than in the morning but beggars can't be choosers.All images taken with a Nikon D300 and a 300 to 800mm sigma zoom.


  1. I think you did very well to get these Sam,the light was going,so i went to Newlyn.
    It was nice to see you again,I'm pleased you got the Camera out,and great results.

  2. Serves you right Sam, I never go anywhere without a camera. Glad you got something.

  3. Nice images Sam, like the last one and you were right it did come back down to the corner (to dark though,lol)

  4. Thanks for the nod Sam.Appreciated.

  5. Oh wow. I just love seeing the Loons. These are fabulous photos! A lot of Loons were on a nearby lake back in April/May as they migrated. I'm always there with my camera.
