Black Necked Grebe:
Not a particularly difficult species to find, but this one has been hanging around the fringes of my UK list for a few years ..... on more than a few occasions I had reminded myself that "I must pop over to Warrington" well I never did, until Sunday, when I decided it was about time.
Once I had parked up it took me less than a minute to locate them, 5 adults and 3 juveniles. Unfortunatly the light was either non existant or way too harsh, and with the birds being distant in the large expanse of water this was about the best image I was going to get.
the adults are a very smart bird .....
so they will have to wait for another day to get onto my website
Still a great hours birding seeing a lovely species for the first time, and of course the thrill of upping the list by one more
