      Here I go again I would like help IDing this species

      I know there are black headed gulls it\'s the bird at the end I am unsure about is it a gooseander or Great crested grebe
    • DesertRhino150
      It looks like its a female goosander.
    • gentle lemur
      I agree. You only see grebes out of the water if they're on the nest or in flight.

      many thanks for your help

      Female Goosander. As Alan says above, Grebes can't perch like that, its a physical impossibility as their legs are set very far back on their bodies.
