Little Grebe

Another rare-ish bird on the River this week,  spotted and asked by some, what is it ? 

It's a little Grebe, they look almost like a duckling because they are so small. Rear end is like a powder puff, and they are divers most of the time, feeding on insects and sticklebacks.

 They are easily disturbed by anglers and boats, this one was just above the Bailey bridge as it happens !
