Bill MortonMonday sees the 7th week for the summering summer plumaged Red-necked Grebe so plenty of opportunity to grab a cracker before it eventually moves to waters new. In the meantime it continues to be found on the river by Redwall Reedbed. The grebe was again sharing the river with the usual assortment of juvenile Coot, ducks and ducklings of Tufted, Gadwall and Shelduck providing a slight distraction.

The image opposite gives some scale of the height of the reeds that you need to wade through to see the grebe.

This picture shows the site where the grebe can be found by the Weaver Estuary.
