After taking a few wrong turns, we found ourselves walking through cattle fields alongside the River heading towards the location. When we got there, we scanned the lake, but the Diver was proving rather elusive. You'd think how on earth can you miss it on a relatively small lake? After slipping and nearly falling flat on my face and watching the enjoyment in Chris adding Great Crested Grebe and Oystercatcher to his year list, we finally tracked down the Diver, how we'd mananged to walk straight passed it, I don't know, but it did spend remarkably long periods of time underneath the water when we did 'attempt' to keep an eye on it.

Back in North Wales, I caught up with a superb adult Med Gull again today at Bangor Harbour and there was also a sighting of a Glaucous Gull that flew pass the Menai Bridge around Lunchtime.
Now is the time to find those gulls and there's a fair few about at the moment, so I will be making the effort in the coming days to see what North Wales can offer!
