Courting grebes at Pagham

Great crested grebes courting

Yesterday morning, Neil, the double glazing specialist, replaced a punctured unit and fixed a couple of other problems, all very effectivley. After he left I headed for Pagham Harbour again as the sun had been shining through a blue sky all day, so the insects should have been rising above the reeds. They were, and the dozen or so birders had been having regular sightings. I managed some and got my best shot so far, though it is pretty poor when compared to professional shots. It about the best I could do with a 300mm lens and fleeting glimpses of the elusive bird. A bonus was seeing these courting Grebes on the lake.
