hello All - hoping someone can help

  • Hi all

     

    I have been trying since Thursday to identify a bird i saw on Cromford Canal - can anyone help?

     

  • Hi kazg

    It's a Little Grebe possibly with youngster although photo isn't clear enough to be sure about that.

    Welcome to the forum by the way

  • thank you!!!

  • Hi kazg,

    Can't help with the ID, but love the photo - a lovely watery effect - like an impressionist painting.

  • Agree with TJ little Grebe,or Dabchick,with young.

  • Hi kazg,
