Black-necked Grebe.

News at last came out of this BNG from Llanilid. To think I was at Llanilid the day after it was found looking for Butterflies.
Haven't seen a summer plumage BNG since the one I found about 1984 at Cadoxton Ponds.
This stonker takes a little patience as it sits in the middle of the lake for long periods. Only when fishing does it come closer, and with the weather about to break I think my chances of improvement are over for a while!
