East Lane in the Sunshine (No Rain!!!)

Went back down to Eastlane on Sunday and would you believe it NO RAIN and but SUNSHINE a far better day for photography.
The Red Throated Diver was still there, but in the better light we could see that it had fishing line and hook around it's neck, although the hook and line were in inside the beak and throat, I have contacted the RSPCA and reported it, lets hope they can help.

Fisherman please be more careful with your hooks and line!!!

Apart from the bad news about the Red Throated Diver it was a Great Day
