Red-necked Grebe, Exmouth

A sunny morning was a bit of a novelty today after all the grey gloom and heavy rain, so I had a look off Exmouth for the Red-necked Grebe found on Monday by local birder Matt Knott - See HERE
I had all but given up, despite seeing the distant Slavonian Grebe and a couple of Great Crested Grebes off Starcross, when the RN Grebe suddenly appeared off Shelly Beach amongst the mass of buoys. A very scarce bird here and my first on the Exe. Below are a few basic handheld digiscoped photos. Thanks Matt!


  1. Hi Chris - glad you caught up with it. Couldn't find it this evening but really hoping it's still around. All the best. Matt

  2. Cheers Matt and a very nice local find! Shame I missed you, but hope to catch up soon.
