Complete Loon!

I am still finding myself drawn to this bird, now into its fourth week at the small pits in the village of Maxey. The North American name for this bird is the Great Northern Loon, quite apt, as I am finding myself neglecting all other birds in my mad quest for a half decent photo! After spending nearly 4 hours at this site yesterday, with a brief spell at Deeping Lakes to see if I could catch up with the long-staying drake Mandarin (I didn't), or catch a glimpse of a PBC lifer in the shape of the locally rare Willow Tit (dipped on that too) and after taking 100's of photos, I managed to grab from the wreckage a couple of okay shots which are above.
