Little Grebe breed throughout the county often on smaller waters where there is suitable shallow water.  During the winter months some sites hold numbers into double figures, although they can be difficult to see as they often hide amongst the marginal vegetation.   Shardeloes Lake near Amersham is a regular breeding site for this species.
