Diversity on the Brigg, 24th Oct '21

Another from the weekend: after the wonderful session on the Brigg on Saturday (see here), another quick session on Sunday yielded hundreds of Starlings (last pic) pushing miraculously into the strong south-westerly and in off the North Sea from the continent (with some Redwings and Skylarks), perilously close to the raging seas, and a cracking almost-full-breeding-plumage Great Northern Diver among other treats (see below)...
.... and this Red-throated Diver performed beautifully for the camera as it (just) avoided a crashing wave on the Brigg, illuminiated by surf and a little splash of late autumn sunshine.
