Great Crested Grebe – 1894

Podiceps cristatus – A winter visitor.

Not very common in Pembrokeshire. Sir Hugh Owen has seen it at Goodwick. Mr. Dix says: “A few are seen during the winter, but invariably in immature or winter plumage.” However, Sir Hugh Owen appears to have met with it in its adult dress, as he informs us he has seen both the Great Crested and the Tippet Grebes, the latter being the common name of the bird in its full plumage.
