Great Crested Grebes were first recorded here in large numbers at the turn of the century, but it is only recently that the full importance of the site has been recognised. Recently, the population has exceeded the level of national importance of 100 birds (Salmon et al. 1988) each winter, with 500+ recorded here in 1981. Peak numbers in recent years have been recorded between December and February, although smaller numbers are recorded during stormy weather. g. 251 on 12 October 1986). It is probable that birds move between the north Wales and Lancashire coasts in response to food supply and weather (Fox & Roderick 1989).

The first breeding record for Cardiganshire occurred in 1949 when a pair reared four young at Rhos-rhydd, and breeding was not recorded in Monmouthshire until 1971 when a pair nested at St. Pierre Lake. The 1965 census (Prestt & Mills 1966) revealed mixed fortunes for this species in the Welsh counties, numbers having increased since 1931 only in Anglesey (17 adult birds), Montgomeryshire (16), Radnorshire (2) and Cardiganshire (2). The most important waters were Llangorse Lake, Hanmer Mere (Flintshire) and Llyn Ebyr (Montgomeryshire), all of which held eight adult birds.

Wintering Great Crested Grebes are much more scarce off the south Wales coast from Pembrokeshire eastwards, although it is regular in small numbers in the Burry Inlet, particularly at Whiteford Point (Glamorgan). g. 30 on 8 March 1971 and again in November 1982). g. 104 in full breeding plumage on 5 May 1973). Despite the fact that this species is a common winter visitor in large numbers to the north Wales coast, it is rarely recorded from Bardsey, where all seven records up to 1983 involved single birds.
