This fine little bird was found while sailing with Bob Tonks and Jason Cross on the yacht Nautsand about 2 miles from shore. The drooping wings is a known characteristic while diving - as can be seen from the water droplets on the back.

The Americans know this bird as Dovekie. It breeds in Spitsbergen (Svalbard).
