Observation details

Juvenile present for its third day - an unusual age/date combination for a species which is in any case generally rare in the London Area. Interesting to see how well developed the red coloration is on the neck in a bird so young. Frequently fed in the shallows under overhanging vegetation, but then swam out to open water to preen and bathe, at which times it showed very well
