Its back!

Ferry Meadows seems to be the place at the moment. As well as this Red-necked Grebe a Mediterranean Gull and Hawfinch are showing occasionally at the moment.

This Grebe was present from 28-30 Dec last year but to the dismay of local year listers vanished in 2005 only to return today. Where has it been in the meantime? Presumably not far away. It is behaving exactly as before tending to stick close to the banks on the southeast side of Overton Lake.

Red-necked Grebe (Podiceps grisegena), first-winter

Digiscoped with the Nikon CP995, Leica APO77 and 20x eyepiece.
