Description

The pair of grebes nested early because the weather was so mild I presume and the babies were swimming in the pond in January. It was very lucky because this pond was the one which developers decided to fill in to allow for apartments (don’t get me started) and therefore many of the birds have had to vacate and find new places start their nest. The parent grebes were kept very busy feeding their brood of four and I was amazed at the size of the catches that they were able to down. This particular catch was not one of the larger ones but I liked the gentleness of the passing from mother to baby. Picture taken in January, 2016.
