RED-NECKED GREBES in breeding plumage are just such stunning birds......

For several days now, this breeding-plumaged RED-NECKED GREBE has graced FARMOOR RESERVOIR, just to the west of Oxford. It is catching lots of small fish and often takes time out from diving to feast on the abundance of insects at the water's surface. Enjoy.....












































Compare the above with this recent bird at Pitsford Reservoir in Northamptonshire










and this Red-necked Grebe at Farmoor last November (same bird?)
