A water bird of Scotland that pestered farmers by eating their unattended cattle. It has a similar appearance to the Northern Diver, but fully black, with webbed feet, hooked beak like an eagle and short clawed legs. It also had a roar like a bull. It flew across the Scottish Highlands and preyed on the cows and the sheep. It also dived in water and lived near the coast.
