Saving Scotland’s Slavonian grebes


This is a video of Slavonian grebes fishing in the USA.

From the RSPB in Britain:

New research is hoping to shed light on the lives of one of Scotland’s most mysterious birds. The Slavonian Grebe only began breeding in the UK in 1908; its population today remains restricted to northern Scotland where latest counts have shown only 22 breeding pairs remain, the lowest level since monitoring records began. As it is a relative newcomer to the country, many aspects of the bird‘s behaviour remain unclear but conservationists are hoping further study will identify what may be driving a decline in numbers.
