Observation details

Amazed to see this bird! Swimming by itself in the middle of the lake, some distance from Mute Swans which it resembled in size and shape except of course being all black with coral red bill with white tip. White secondaries. It drifts closer to 100 m away? Could identify with naked eye, but I also viewed it thru 20x scope and took a blurry photo with my iPhone, to be uploaded later.
