It breeds in much of the Old World and the Atlantic coast of North America.This is a very common and widespread bird species. It feeds on the sea, in estuaries, and on freshwater lakes and rivers. Northern birds migrate south and winter along any coast that is well-supplied with fish.

Hi Pawel.
I often can watch this bird from far distance or in flight. You are luckier and had an opportunity to take so wonderful picture. I like a bit cold colours of the shot, wonderful sharpness and details of the bird image and very pleasant reproduction of the water surface. My kind wishes and TFS.
Alexei.
