Courting Grebes

by A warbler a day

I stopped off this afternoon at Lakeside Country Park on the outskirts of Eastleigh. The weather was cold and damp with a hint of snow still in the air. It was generally quiet with no winter finches. However I was treated to the spectacle of a pair of Great Crested Grebes performing their courtship dance. One of the birds even offering a gift of some waterweed. Always a lovely sight.
