Thanks to Ralph Jones for sending me this shot of the Pied Billed Grebe that went public at Hollingsworth Lake in Greater Manchester this pm, almost a week into its sojourn.
"Popped over to Hollingsworth Lake to have a look at the Pied-billed Grebe this afternoon", says Ralph.
"Very nice bird, posed at the edge of the lake for a while, then did some fishing.
Attached a photo, though a bit distant".
In the old fashioned days, used to be the case that Pied Billeds hung around for at least 100 years - it'll be interesting to see how long this Yankee sticks.
Eyes to the skies everyone, eyes to the skies...
