A cracking first for the county for a long time.

Not since circa 2006 has a Black-necked Grebe been seen at the Venus Pool reserve near Shrewsbury
until Saturday the 2nd of May, when a pair of these Grebes appeared in full breeding plumage.
A fantastic sight to see these birds, even though they kept their distance from the gathered observers.

So here is the best I could get at great distance,

Black-necked Grebe.

 An early return in the morning proved fruitless with no sightings at all reported during the day,
so they must have continued their northern migration.
