On land, Black Throated Diver's are clumsy, barely able to walk with their legs so far back on their bodies. They are easily disturbed when breeding and their sensitivity to marine pollution make them a vulnerable as well as rare breeding species.

These very attractive birds are also very sensitive so please do not disturb them or linger for too long by their favoured lochans.

Regularly found on this freshwater loch during the spring and early summer. Calm conditions usually make locating birds much easier.
