If the river was whisky ...and I was a diving duck ...
If the river were whiskey ...and I was some diving duck
I would dive unto the bottom ...and I'd never ever come back up ....

A few words from an old blues number came to mind when I read about your diving duck Mike ....wonderful capture of this Smew !
Best regards
