Excellent set of shots Jeff. This grebe has been nailed. Well done all those who got 'full framers'.

Yeah, very nicely done Jeff. I noticed it was flying around a bit on the weekend. It didn't fly at all when I was there on Wednesday, maybe it's getting ready to move on in the next couple of days? It's been a very popular bird that's for certain.

Hi Mark,I was there for a couple of hours and it only flew the once and that was barely 30m when it was spooked by the pair of Mallard on the pool.
I didn't mind too much as it flew back to my end of the pool !
