Black-necked grebe is a different kettle of fish. It's a very rare bird here, I saw one in Beadnell Bay back in 1995 and that is the only one I have ever recorded here, so it's a bit of a 'Patch Mega' to me.
Today I was in Seahouses, so I dropped down to the harbour to check the gulls. There was little of note in the way of gulls, but this cracking black-necked grebe was motoring around harbour.
Shame it is a couple of miles north of my patch boundary, I wonder if I can boot it south !
