Red-Necked Grebe

A trip this morning down to Broadsands in South Devon to look for a reported Siberian Chiffchaff but I couldn't find it anywhere after much looking .
But I did see 4 male and 6 female Cirl Bunting`s , a few Common Blackbird`s and around 5 Goldcrest , I then went and had a look at the sea where I saw a Great Northern Diver , a male and female Common Eider , a Black-Necked Grebe and a few Black-Legged Kittiwake .
The next stop was at Goodrington Sands where there was 12 Common Scoter , 2 Velvet Scoter and a Red-Necked Grebe .
