Great Northern Diver and Goldeneye at Draycote Water.

Draycote Water is a large reservoir owned by Severn Trent Water and is worth a visit at this time of the year as Winter approaches. On this occasion it was the Greta Northern Diver that attracted us to the 5-mile walk around the reservoir although the Goldeneye certainly showed well also! The 2x tele-converter on the Canon 100-400mm Mk 2 lens continues to be useful and performed well in the windy dull conditions during this visit: using the telescope for digiscoping would have been impossible.
