Black-Necked Grebe

Just a quick note to report back on several more trips to Lower Bittell, in the hope of seeing the black-necked grebe closer up. Hurrah! Success at last, as it came right over to the road-side of the lake, and fished for several minutes below where I was standing.

The sun was out too, even if it was raining a little.

Caught the colours of the bird very well. No osprey today, though it had been seen earlier in the day on the Upper lake. Caught a fish too. Hope that stays around.

But today has been about the grebe, and it performed brilliantly.
