Black Necked Grebe
The black-necked grebe is a highly-sociable, small and dark member of the grebe family. Known as the 'eared grebe' in America.
The UK has a small resident breeding population of black redstarts supplemented annually by passage migrants, overwintering birds and summer breeders. Often at home as a city dweller choosing derelict sites, old buildings and industrial areas, the black redstart will also choose cliff ledges, gorges, rock and scree habitats.
