Great crested grebe
A delightfully elegant waterbird with ornate head plumes which led to its being hunted for its feathers, almost leading to its extermination from the UK. They dive to feed and also to escape, preferring this to flying. On land they are clumsy because their feet are placed so far back on their bodies. They have an elaborate courtship display in which they rise out of the water and shake their heads. Very young grebes often ride on their parents' backs.
Where does it live?
Shallow, reed-fringed freshwater lakes, gravel pits and slow rivers.
The same as breeding habitats but also found along sheltered coastal areas, including estuaries.
Where to see it
Lowland lakes, gravel pits, reservoirs and rivers. Also found along coasts in winter.
What does it eat?
What does it sound like?
Growls and barks.
When to see it
All year round
Red-necked grebe, Red-throated diver

This is great capture, it is pitty that you have a focus problem here, the picture is not sharp enough, I am sending a workshop with sharpened version.
