Rockland Redneck

A structures check and WeBS count on the South side of the river gave the perfect excuse to take a look at the Red Necked Grebe that has been present for a few days on Rockland broad. The bird was showing fairly well in front of the hide (which is structurally sound) for a few minutes until an angler decided to reposition their boat in front of the hide, scattering all ducks/grebes.
A pretty good Mid-Yare Valley tick, would have been good to have it on the river at Strumpshaw, but above all else it was great to actually be able to see all the key features in good light rather than a kilometre out to sea in choppy conditions. Photos don't do it justice but you get the general idea...
