The red-throated diver is the smallest of the divers here in the UK. They have the ability to stay underwater for up to a minute and a half, and will often jump up before diving.
They have slightly up-tilted bills and a grey and brown colouring - this makes it easier to distinguish from other species. When summer arrives, these birds have bright red necks that make them even more identifiable.
Red-Throated Divers are quite clumsy on land, so will only come onto land for breeding.
Their diets consist of fish.
