I don't know what I saw - it was from a distance on the edge of a salt flat where I was prospecting for mullet. There was nothing there then a crow flew over and spooked maybe 50 birds of different sizes. The birds were invisible before being spooked, how many invisible fish were also spooked invisibly.

Bit (very) late to the party with this but saw a black throated diver last year while fishing a loch in Perthshire.
Never seen them that far south before.

A change from the usual cormorants, I saw a Shag at Rutland. By the way, I was in a boat, not peeping through car windows. Solitary bird, Barnhill Creek.
