GREBE 0r GOOSANDER, Staffordshire.

Is it a Great Crested Grebe or a Goosander. Lousy photo and I was not the photographer. Taken on the river Dove in Staffordshire. Thanks.

If you don't already, please be sure to report your sightings to the Staffordshire County Recorder:

Either directly, or by allowing your data to be forwarded, if you use BirdTrack.

Thank you.
