After a disappointing WeBS count at Mansands, went to Broadsands late morning for something better! While watching a winter Med Gull through my telescope, a Red-throated Diver popped up behind it. Then another and another, then saw 14 altogether, all in a line. Also with them was a Black-throated Diver. Could only get some of them in the picture. After 15 minutes or so, they all flew off towards Brixham Harbour. There were also 2 Black-necked Grebes, 16 Great Crested Grebes and 6 female Common Scoters.
