Great-crested Grebe – 1980s winter

Podiceps cristatus – GWYACH FAWR GOPOG – Sparse winter visitor

The BTO winter atlas showed that Great Crested Grebes were present in most coastal and estuarine 10km squares during the winters of 1981-82, 1982-82 and 1983-84.

The darker the colour, the higher the relative total count for each 10km square.  The darkest blue represents over 4-15 birds.
