It was a bright day but no sunshine as such but the wind was very light. I'd also had a heads up from Tim that the Great Crested Grebes (at least - one of the two pairs) had laid some eggs... so how could I resist!!
I headed up and membership duly renewed I went in search.
There they were, a contented couple. I'd viewed the nest from the distant bank before going around and had seen 1 egg.... I was in for a treat.
Despite the lack of sun, it was to my favour as had it been shining I would have been shooting directly into it.
Mum was in the nest when I got there.
Swimming over, they both added some more nesting material. Whilst Mum was off the nest, I tried - in vain - to spot any eggs but couldn't see a single one.
What a privilege it is to see such magnificent birds.
And by now, the raindrops had started so I headed off for home - a very happy bunny to have seen what I did today :D
