Great Crested Grebe
Podiceps cristatus

Improvvisa emersione del soggetto

Identification:
They are the largest European grebes with slender white necks in all plumages. In winter the face is mostly pale with just a narrow black, slightly crested, cap. In summer this pattern develops into elaborate black and chestnut plumes called tippets. In flight they appear hump-backed with conspicuously pale panels in the long narrow wings.
Habitat:
Breeds on lakes, gravel pits, reservoirs and slow moving rivers. Winters on estuaries, lakes and reservoirs.
Population:
There are an estimated 8000 birds in Britain, with 4 000 birds in Ireland. Wintering birds will swell this figure to between 9000-10000 birds, depending on continental weather conditions.
About 300,000 pairs breed throughout Europe. Russian population 100000-1000000 Turkish population 1000-10000
