Photographer's Note

Today I have posted three pictures that all share the same title.

This is a Great Crested Grebe. These birds are well-known for their elaborate courtship dance, during which they rise vertically out of the water and shake their heads.

They are diving water birds, feeding on small fish and aquatic invertebrates.

Their nests are floating platforms of grasses and weed. Usually to be seen on lakes and reservoirs.

I saw this bird and nest on a man-made lake that had previously been a sand quarry. The nest was close to a pavement where there was regular footfall.

Please look at the other shots in the workshop.

Thanks for looking.
