Bird was swimming on Coniston Water about 25m from the shore. Pretty sure that this is not a crested grebe but cannot find an alternative

A female.

I think the crest has been made to look larger by the wind.

I think you've accidentally added this twice - see

I'd suggest deleting one of the entries (probably the other one which has fewer agreements and comments)

I think the time for deleting one of these entries has passed. As people have added ID's and agreements I think it unfair to delete either entry. Double postings are common on iSpot and in the scale of things doesn't matter too much.
