Is this grebe the one just up the road from us Hawkeye ? We have been watching it since ir arrived some weeks ago in almost winter plumage. We saw it again yesterday looking like your photo in the company of a Black Necked Grebe. We also had Little and Great Crested Grebe making it a four Grebe visit.

My bird of the day is shared between a common crane that flew over the canal as we were on a walk with the twins, and a grass snake that swam across it a bit later.

We were on the edge of the Slimbridge reserve so the crane was almost certainly one of the released birds, but even so it's a magnificent thing to see in the wild at close range.
