Slavonian Grebe

Lade - cold and frosty, light airs - Another stunning winters morning with bright sunshine and blue skies, although if the forecast is to be believed it could be the last for a while as milder weather is due to arrive shortly. The local Slavonian Grebe has been a bit elusive of late, but not so this morning when it showed like a good `un close to the main track on a mirror-calm lake, allowing a photographic opportunity; don't you just love that ruby-red eye!
  Also present on south lake were the less than obliging Long-tailed Duck, two Goosanders and 11 Goldeneyes. Two Marsh Harriers worked the far reed bed and a Bittern took flight leading me to conclude that there may be two currently on site, one on each lake.
