When I got to the lake at 9.30AM I thought it had gone because there were no cars in the car park and no birders to be seen anywhere but a quick scan found the Grebe in the middle.Got him all to myself.
For the next hour I tried to get a close up video of our little friend but managed to mess up every video I took with my 7D camera mainly because it's hard to focus on it especially when it keeps diving all the time.I did end up with some great videos of empty water and had to reject others because the mike picked up my continual swearing as I failed to focus on it.
Here are a few more pics but no video.
My bad mood caused by not getting a video was lifted mid morning when I spotted a great rarity and managed to rattle off a shot.Here it is.
Yes your eyes are not deceiving you it is the living legend Steve Seal making a rare visit to the Midlands.Good to see you again Steve!!!!
