Do you mean the little grebes at the Whangarei Water Treament Plant? If so, I saw a couple there about 2 weeks ago - haven't been back lately to see if there are any chicks (which there were last year). Cheers Scott

They're also generally at the Waro Limestone Reserve at Hikurangi.

I saw one Aus Little Grebe on 16th October - was near the carpark entrance end of the lake. It was hidden in the reeds for most of my visit and only popped out at the end, so worth just waiting round and scanning. Cheers Scott.

I am pleased to say I found the Little Grebe at Limeburners wetlands in Whangarei 5th Dec. In the pool adjacent to AB Engineering. It was quiet and relaxed and allowed picture taking.
