Grimsbury Reservoir :: 12 April 2018

Black-necked grebeAnother breakfast time tweet from @987jonty and another visitor to Grimsbury Reservoir in Banbury, this time a summer plumage black necked grebe [#107]. A great find and a beautiful bird.

Initially @987jonty said he though it was a female tufted duck, head down and resting, as it was hanging out with a male tufted duck. He realised what it was as he got nearer. It favoured the NE end of the reservoir and was reported to be calling frequently and at lunchtime had a good feed, diving near the edge.
