Thanks for the votes and comments on my previous upload, much appreciated.
Today I spent a couple of hours chasing the Grebes around the lake at Broomey Croft Pool, Kingsbury, Nr. Tamworth. They always appear in the wrong place on the other side of the lake, then when you go there, they appear back where you were. Very frustrating. Managed to get a few shots, though didn't quite get them dancing.
2nd image just a record shot due to the severe backlighting and distance they were away.
Hope you like them?

I know what you mean when you say one side of the lake to the other, had some of that last weekend and came back with nothing worthy of uploading, V1 is a cracker Derek but I would say V2 is a little more than a record shot, I like it, you have captured 'what they do' very well indeed,
Regards,
Geoff

Thanks for the comment. I use a Kenko Teleplus 300 1.4 convertor, really good value for money.
