Grebe ID please....

I'm not very good at these, sorry. Visited the reserve a couple of days ago and the increase in the number of wildfowl is really astonishing, the water is thick with them, all come in the last couple of weeks or so. Also very large flocks of Lapwings in the surrounding fields. This was the only picture I managed, alas, as time was a bit limited. Any info gratefully received.

Thanks Tony and Ruth - I've only ever seen them in summer plumage before so have learnt something useful.
