    Lovely shot, lovely birds. Once had the privilege of filming these in the Shetland Islands.

    Quite strange really, IIRC in UK you need a license to photograph at the nest. On the reserve where I took this image a footpath went within 5m of RTD nest. In a load of reeds so not a photography location.

    I had to smile when I saw this, 16000 images. Just thinking way back in the early 1980's when I was in the Shetland's I think I took about twenty or thirty shots of a Red Throated Diver, and that was considered a lot. Especially when you were using Kodachrome 25/64 at seven quid odd a roll.
    Just think 16000 shots that would have been 444 rolls of film at a mere 3108 quid. To this day I do not take loads of shots I try and make every shot count as I did way back in the days of film.
