We were fortunate to have good weather for this visit and the leaves were hardly out which certainly helped with the bird photography.

There were several nice spring Wheatears in the same field as the Dotterel, and they came much closer at times!

The main object of this visit - usually frustratingly distant it briefly came a bit closer allowing this to be taken. It makes an interesting comparison with my 2004 digiscope shots at the same site.

A remarkably confiding bird by the road - taken using the car as a hide.
Black-necked Grebe
Black-necked Grebe, Woolhampton GP, Berks

6 April 2013

This was one of three quite obliging birds that periodically came quite close into the southern shore.

I have been after a summer plumage BN Grebe for sometime - so I was very pleased these birds were still around today.

In the act of diving. Great to have a bit of sun for photography and slightly warmer conditions!
