The Great Crested Grebe is the largest member of the grebe family found in the Old World, with some larger species residing in the Americas.
The adults are unmistakable in summer with head and neck decorations. In winter, this is whiter than most grebes, with white above the eye, and a pink bill.
The young are distinctive because their heads are striped black and white. They lose these markings when they become adults.
