Spotted this little bird (smaller than e.g. a moorhen), on the canal by Aldcliffe Rd. today. It was diving, and coming up with a little fish most times! Is it a Little Grebe in its winter plumage? Or a juvenile of some variety? Sorry about the picture quality, but it’s just on my phone.

Yes it’s a little grebe, we saw it the other day. It’s the first I’ve seen on that stretch of the canal.
Thanks, Steve. I’ve not seen one before, so I’m pleased I managed to ID it correctly!
