A mid afternoon visit finally produced views of the Red-necked Grebe, which has been elusive for the past couple of days since Mike's sighting. It was feeding off Elbury Cove , south towards Fishcombe, together with a Great Crested . Both were then nearly run down by a powerboat. . The Great Crested flew off  but the Red-necked was still there at 1600 when I left. Also 2 Black-necked Grebes off  Broadsands.
