Red-necked Grebe, Slavonian Grebe in Angle Bay

A brief visit to Angle Bay this lunchtime was rewarded with a nice selection of species including one Red-necked Grebe in w/p and one Slavonian Grebe (also w/p), both seen in the general vicinity of the Great Crested Grebes from the Rhoscrowther shore of the bay.  Also, at least six Pintails, 34 Light-bellied Brent Geese, one Dark-bellied Brent and a nice selection of waders on the shingle spit in the harbour, including four Bar-tailed Godwits, one Knot, Dunlin, Oystercatcher, Redshank (all in pic above) Curlew and Ringed Plovers.
