Black - Necked Grebe and others.

In the last few days I have seen 120 Lapwing in the Hatford area and on the Ridgeway Linnet, Stonechat, Yellowhammer and Corn Bunting. Yesterday friends (Hazel & Robert Wyatt) who also live in Stanford in the Vale told me about a recent trip to Baulking Fullers Earth Quarry where they watched many Little Grebe on the water but noticed one bird that looked different and after looking in their bird book wondered if it could be a Black-Necked Grebe. I later checked it out and indeed they had it right it was a Black-Necked Grebe showing well although a long way out and therefore  restricting a quality photo. So! Well Done! to Robert and Hazel and thanks for the call.
