Re: Communal Bird Photography Thread


Well done for getting this going so quickly. I hope these help!

I was watching a pair of Grebes nesting on a secluded lake and managed to get a number of shots of nest building and then patiently nest sitting on a few visits.

One day I took along a friend to show him - and as we arrived we spotted the male had been fishing and had the most enormous tench. Over about 20 minutes he tried everything as these pictures show ... to swallow his catch.

I cannot say whether the fish was eaten or given up as we had to move on but it was no longer visible when we returned about 45 minutes later . All was calm and the grebe was not noticeably deeper in the water!
