Red-throated Diver 29 Jan 2020 Bradwell Bird Observatory (BBO) John Sutherby 291 South on incoming tide. Quite a spectacle, with 120+ going past in a two minute spell. The movement stopped at 15:00 just prior to high tide. Of interest, and which might explain the large number - at the the time there were hundreds of gulls out in mid estuary and a lot of coming and going of Cormorants too, probably involving many hundreds of birds.
