Just a dash round the north lake this morning; a vet appointment for Jim later.
The Great Northern Diver is still around, and it was good to get a few pictures in some sunlight.
Because they have such a dark eye, I was determined to capture a shot or two that had a catchlight in the eye.
I think I succeeded.
A Kingfisher was again up by the weir, but no pictures today. I was on the phone to the vet.
The adapted squirrel proof nut feeder is in place, so I'll have to see if it has worked tomorrow.

Update on Jim.
He's on some tablets, to try and help with his breathing. He's had a problem for a while now, but usually seems worse in the hot weather. Constantly panting, until he gets cooler.
If the tablets don't help, then it's a very complicated and expensive operation, which isn't guaranteed anyway.
Plus he's old like me; but his heart is stronger than mine.
