I didn't expect to come across a Great Crested Grebe in Bundanoon. I've only seen them on expansive bodies of water in the Highlands: Wingecarribee and Fitzroy Falls Reservoirs. Anyhow, one turned up late yesterday on a small dam off Blue Gum Rd. It was in non-breeding plumage, its long brown/white neck and dagger-like beak distinctive. That's the 3rd grebe species for town and bird 151. Nice one. LJ, 17 March 2013.
