A Slavonian Grebe had been at Astbury for nearly a week. Only yesterday had I any chance to do the 5 mile drive. I wasnt expecting it to stay so long luckily it has. As soon as I got there I thought it must be showing well as there were plenty Photographers knocking around. It looks quite healthy with plenty of diving involved but I didnt see it return to the surface with anything. The Scaup also was still present from months back. It was nice to get out birding if for only a short while. Fingers crossed February will be more productive in the field.
