Great Crested Grebe on North Uist

Post by BrianR » 01 Aug 2016, 19:43

Bill Allan located a juvenile Great Crested Grebe on Loch Sandary this afternoon. A rare visitor to the Outer Hebrides with the three most recent records being in March 2001, September 2006 and February 2010. I'm not aware of any after 2010 but there possibly have been. A record shot is attached.
