Red throated Diver Family at Liscannor Harbour


Three scruffy Red throated Divers had moved in from Lahinch bay on a late dark cloudy evening at Liscannor as hurricane ophelia approaches our shores .
The two furthest birds out from the harbour were a parent and sibling , the juvenile visually smaller, following,approaching and calling every time the parent surfaced from a dive, not a sight I had witnessed before. 👀 (Q: possible Irish birds?)
The other bird that I believe to be the other parent still showing signs of summer plumage calmly came close in fishing allowing me some sort of light for a decent photo.
