A bird that can be regularly found around the Ferrybridge waters.
From my observations of this species there, it is able to find plenty of food.
Its large yellow feet are visual in these images.
It is both a resident species and a Winter visitor.
In fact here in Dorset is the location where this species bred for the first time in 1996. There are now numerous locations in the South coast area where it is resident.
