Great Northern Divers are common along the Harris coastline throughout the winter an can be seen in large numbers in the Sound of Taransay and Sound of Harris. They are a large streamlined shape with a dagger like bill.

Great-northern divers can easily be confused with red-throated and black-throated divers that are a similar shape but considerable smaller and slighter. They are usually seen in winter plumage but in April and May some birds are seen in spectacular summer plumage
