A day spent observing some spring jewels, namely Red-necked Grebe & Black-necked Grebe. These birds are truly stunning in their summer plumage. So rare to see Red-necked Grebe in full regalia. Black-necked Grebes are more common in their summer attire. This Red-necked Grebe has returned to this area of Yorkshire for its seventh year. Also seen during the day were numerous Chiffchaff & Sand Martin; small numbers of Little-ringed Plover, a single Green Sandpiper and a single Holly Blue & Peacock.

Year List moves on to 152.
