I'm surprised it's still there. What's it finding to eat? It must be on a starvation diet. Doesn't it know that there are enough fish in Eccleston Mere to keep 100 Great Northerns happy?? Nice photo.

Obviously a discerning great northern diver appreciating the lack of dog walkers, fishermen and sailing boats. Plenty of sticklebacks in the res.
