Story about a great northern diver, 1885

Identifier: Coll-97/CW87/36

Scope and Contents

Story about a great northern diver collected from Kenneth MacLean, merchant, Lochmaddy [Loch nam Madadh, Uibhist a Tuath/North Uist] describing the one occasion on which he saw a great northern diver on the wing at Fladda, Lochmaddy [Flodaigh/Flodday] 'The wings went rapidly and the bird seemed to exert himself greatly'. That the bird might have been a black throated diver and not a great northern diver is put forward. Carmichael notes that he and his children saw a great northern diver 'flapping along the surface of the water' in September 1884 on Locheitive [Loch Etive, Earra GhĂ idheal/Argyllshire]
