This video, recorded in Norway, says about itself:
White [or: Yellow] billed Diver Gavia adamsii
In the first part of the video, second-calendar year bird, Ekkeroy, with a resting Great northern diver and then adult in full breeding plumage, Vadso, Varanger fjord, Arctic Norway June 2008. One of our target species, far easier than expected with at least 5 birds seen, the first one being the nice adult in breeding suit!!
This species is seen more often in Siberia, Canada or Alaska, where it nests, than in the Netherlands. The last yellow-billed-loon in the Netherlands was in 2010. Probably, the bird will stay some time in the Grevelingen lake.
The loon attracted many birders: here.
