Little Grebe

To my eternal shame I thought this was a Teal, until I showed the shot to a proper birdwatcher who arrived in the hide (the Grebe had gone by then) My excuse is I didn't have a book with me.



Time for a spot of lunch


Not what I had in mind

Re: Little Grebe

These are excellent shots of Little Grebe (aka Dabchick). I find they are wary of established hides so all my shots are from 30 metres plus.

This wasn't a lot closer, the shot is a fairly hefty crop.

This is an uncropped one, they were all taken with the 50-200 at 200mm

Re: Little Grebe

These are difficult little blighters to photograph because they're so darned quick!
