Observation details

Bird was usually in close proximity to other waterfowl and has distinctive rounded grebe shape. The chestnut colour of the breast was a clear giveaway and regular diving behavior. Body colour was a darker grey. Bird was wary and stayed on the far side of the lagoon. When swooped by a harrier it did an emergency dive, creating quite a splash.
