The One That Got Away!

The Slav Grebe today was a little ambitious in his quest for food. He caught this huge perch and after much wrestling it got away-closely followed by the grebe but he didnt re-catch his potential meal!

Geese and Grebes

Enjoyed watching the Slav grebe successfully catching fish. Also these Canada geese entertained me whilst they enjoyed their bathing!

Slavonian Grebe

Nice to see this bird in our local country park. The light was atrocious for photography, the camera needed a high ISO so not the most perfect pics but nice for the record!

Nice views of this rare bird, difficult to photo as in direct sunlight with strong wind, he was bobbing up and down rather a lot!! Managed this one reasonable shot.
