18/02/2015 Fairhaven Lake
This was by far the best views of a RTD that I have ever had.
Usually I only get to see this cracking bird through my scope looking far out at sea or sitting in the middle of a large reservoir.
I arrived early morning and the bird was a little distant in the middle of the lake before a boat came whizzing past it and pushed it off to the opposite end.
Here the bird was happily diving and coming right up to me.
