Slavonian Grebe

Only had to wait five days to add another species to my area year list. I can't remember the last time I checked Bradley Fen so it was a stroke of luck to turn this up in my lunch break today. This used to be my WeBS count years ago when it was known as Drysides Pit and I found a Slavonian Grebe here once before on 18th Oct 1998. Crikey, that's ten years ago!

There were also a couple of Chiffchaffs and a couple of Goldcrests about.

Could this even be one of the birds we saw in Finland back in June?!
