Throwback Thursday

Swimming in the Shallows.

Throwback Thursday travels back to the 1980s and a bird in its habitat. The photo was taken at Brown Moss, a nature reserve and Site of Special Scientific Interest near Whitchurch, Shropshire, England.

This is a Little Grebe (Tachybaptus ruficollis) in breeding plumage. An alternative name for the Little Grebe is Dabchick which seemed more commonly used when I was growing up. The bird is swimming in a shallow section of the large pool on the reserve.

Little Grebe or Dabchick.

Thank you. That’s very interesting information. I’ll research for some more details. (If interested, I plan to post a photo of our Dabchick later today…)
