Lunchtime dipping is back again


Great Crested Grebe, showing well...

Went to FM again this lunchtime, full of hope of getting some excellent (or at least slightly better) shots of the Red-necked Grebe. The light was superb and we knew the bird was still around.

Unfortunately, we spent the best part of 45 minutes patrolling the shore of Overton Lake to no avail. As we were leaving, we saw Will and Ray Bowell scanning the waters. We pointed them in the right direction and left for work...

Of course, it showed brilliantly again after that, and today's pics are considerably better than yesterday's... That's what happens when the DSLR boys arrive on the scene, and the sun comes out. Gah.
