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

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.
Birding is for everyone no matter how good or bad we are at it,enjoy it while you can
