    I saw a large Diver that I took to be a GN Diver over the kelseys heading in slight confusion inland at around 10am, it has obviously occurred to me now, that it may have been the White-billed Diver seen at Bass Rock, it’s flight seemed very slow and heavy,that I even considered a poss WB Diver at the time but wrote it off as to rare a possibility,I wish I took some photos but didn’t think to do so,I guess I’ll never Know now. Another lesson learnt the hard way.
