Little Grebe ( aka Dabchick) (tachybaptus ruficollis)
Caught this little devil yesterday in the process of catching his meal. He had quite a tussle with it before getting it in just the right position and managing to swallow it.

Most grateful and appreciative thanks for the very generous c/c's on the Stonechat.
