The black-throated diver is arguably the most handsome British breeding-bird.

Not only is it blessed with the most superbly patterned plumage in black, white and grey, but it also exudes aristocratic poise and elegance and to see one is truly a thrill.

They breed on remote Scottish lochs and I sketched this one in the Highlands one early morning in May, as the low sun glanced across the end of the loch picking out the texture of the rocks behind.

Original painted in oils on board.
