Post-work Slavonian

A quick dash out after work for my daily exercise was enlivened by a Slavonian Grebe, the first I've seen in the local area. Typically tiny and black and white, with bright white cheeks and different 'feel' to Black-necked, lacking that species' jaunty upturned beak and steep forehead. A rare bird in the York area with less than 20 records in the last 50 years and a nice find by Dave Waudby.
