Great crested grebe

By Mike_Young
Morning all,
Many thanks for the visits , comments and not forgetting the lovely awards for my last upload, all most appreciated.

Spent a very pleasant day in the sun at our local lakes with Lillian watching the Grebes, they played at game of catch me if you can, five birds, two pairs and an odd one kept us on our toes. Often coming together and head waggling but only at the end of the day did they actually mate. Sadly no display of the offering nest material routine.
The lead bird is pictured having a stretch after an intense preening session, versions show some head waggling.

Hope you enjoy these as much as I did taking them, thanks for looking
