Wild Bird Wednesday: Great Crested Grebe

While out at Lake Samsonvale a couple of weeks ago, I spied a bird I have never seen before; a Great Crested Grebe. I was just a little excited.

These shots are heavily cropped due to this bird being rather elusive! Make sure you enlarge the images so you can see them better








Linking with Stewart's meme.

hij is mooi maar wel heel eenzaam.

Great photos of a fantastic bird there, Liz! Clear, sharp and well-lit for an undoubtedly distant bird!

Lake Samsonvale is a great spot for this species but I also saw one on Lake Somerset in February. They only ever seem to live on big open waters.
